I don't know...I can't taper that fast. Alot depends on how long you've been on it too. I was on pred one time for a year...and had to tapper really really slow. I did the 5mg down ever week. My Dr. was pretty cool about my smptoms and letting me control it. When I was finally off it completley....a few weeks later I get pretty sevre (reactive arthritus) that lasts a couple of months. NOT FUN! but, Fish Oil helps ALOT!
