hi , I have a question regarding pred tapering I have been on this since October 20th, 2011 can I start taking 2.5mg one day and next day nothing and keep alternating? I am in the homestretch to getting off of it. basically, 2.5mg then next day 0mg.
I have every side effect from this drug, severe nausea, dizziness, fatigue, etc. I am eagerly waiting to get of of it. my UC seems much much better but urgency issues are still there.

Current dx: sigmoid area, 12 yrs w/ disease

Diet: fenugreek,salmon, white rice,trying gluten- free(reduced my urgency)
