Hi Heidi, I'm sorry you are having a tough time getting off the pred. It seems more people than not have this problem. Dropping from 10mg to 5mg all at once is a large drop. Maybe the doctor can bump you back upto at least 7.5 for awhile and see if that helps. I know I had a miserable time. In fact the doctor took me off of the pred all together. I was so sick I could barely get around. I went back on it again. I hope they can find the right combination for you and you start to feel better.
