I'm down to 30mg of pred as of today.... So far, so good... No blood, only going 2 to 3 times a day with formed poopies... YEAH! I'm tapering at 10mg per week.. don't know fur sure if that's too fast of a taper though.... feeling a little queasy tonight and it's my first day at 30mg down from 40.... Not too bad, just a little queasy. been eating like a pig though and I am fat faced and have a hump on my back! YUK.. I feel like a buffalo... lol... hopefully that won't take too long to go away. If I still feel queasy tomorrow, I'll up it to 35mg for a week and go down only 5mg a week instead of 10. Just not sure how fast to taper... if anyone can suggest what is usual... that would be great~
