I can't really help you with Pred since I can take it, but with the plaquenil... I have stopped taking the plaquenil before and it only takes a couple of days and I am in pain. I have a friend who is also on it and she can't tell a difference when she stops. I know for me that whenever I stop plaquenil and then start again the pain subsides somewhat.
Hang in there. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
