The one thing about
Lupus is that nothing is ever the same!
Just because you could taper off the prednisone before doesn't mean you can this time, Lupus may be "acting out" in a different way than before.
My suggestion would be to go back to the 7.5 daily - of course, with your Dr's full knowledge and permission.
If you haven't already contacted your Dr about
the change in your symptoms, especially if you've not had the nausea/diarrhea before, you really should do so asap.
Keep us posted, and make sure to eat when you take your meds -- isn't Cellcept one of those you need to take with food? Not having enough in your stomach with some of these drugs can be a big issue.
