Humira was successful in getting me off the pred but it was a slow taper off - 6 months. For me, each time I dropped the pred down it was a wait and see how I felt and that was my indication that it was working. Ive been on it a year next month and have been off the pred since early April (after 7 long years) and I have much less pain.
I hope the Humira does its magic for you.
