Hi guys, this is my first real post on here
I was wondering if anyone has any experience tapering/ stopping prednisone. I have been taking prednisone for about
a year, starting at 60mg and now have tapered down to 5mg every other day and have started methotrexate to make my joint pain better w/o the high dose of prednisone. I've been on 5mg every other day for about
5 months and I'm wondering if it would be ok to just stop taking it or if theres another step to taper.
Also if youve taken pred did you lose the weight you gained after you stopped taking it? over the past year I've gained about
15lbs, I know its not as much as some people but I still hate it and want it gone!!!!
Sorry for ranting long post and thanks for any advice in advance!!
