been on pred for a 6 weeks started at 30, then went to 40mg, then doc said start weening
back to 30mg for a week, 20 mg for a week then 10mg for a week then go off, i still have this bloated feeling, been off prd for 2 days now, do u think going from 10mg to 0 was to quick, or would
u maybe take 5mg for a week, would it be okay to do that since i have been off for 2 days.
just asking advuse, i know youyr docs.

Agree with the latter...go to five for a week or so...
Agreeing that not doc too, but from personal experience, 10 to body HATED it!...hoping you do well on your weaning...
