I'm no doctor Lynnette, but I do agree with Lynwood about tapering very slowly. I was determined to get off prednisone and didn't want to relapse while tapering, so my last 10 mg took me a year of tapering 1 mg a month. I told my rheumy I wanted to do that. One said I'd never be able to get under 5 mg because I'd been on it for so long (6 years) but my current one agreed so I did it. And it worked. I've been prednisone free for 5 1/2 months. It's like a miracle, but I urge you not to take any risks and taper too fast.
Good luck! You can do it!
