So, I've decreased my prednisone to 15 from 20mg...and have felt/seen some pretty bad changes. However, I am also 'starting' this week, and it seems that each month I do get worse the week before. So, yesterday I was in so much pain it brought me to tears, and I refuse to go back up on the prednisone b/c the end is almost here and I've worked hard to get down from the 40mg.
Well, my husband brought me 2 vicadin (sp...sorry!) and I slept all night! I did!!!! Then this morning I was sick a little, but nothing like yesterday! So...I'm just going to take one in the morning and one in the evening to get me through till Thursday afternoon b/c that's when my prep starts and then Friday is the big day!
I just wanted to share my little narcotic story...I am amazed that I slept all night...well, till 4:15am...that's good enough for me!
