A lot of these meds work fast, but I don't think you can expect to be 100% in such a short time. You need to give yourself some time to heal. I wouldn't get discouraged, it hasn't been long at all. Maybe you should just stay steady on the prednisone for another week or two, then try to decrease very slowly. I think 2.5mg, like you're doing, is reasonable. Under 10mg, you may want to go even slower. People's responses are individual. You could start seeing a response right away, or it could take a month or two to see large improvement. I had no improvement, so there is always that situation, but it's pretty rare to be a non-responder.
