I ran into trouble last time when I got down to 2-1/2 mg of prednisone for 4 straight days. Trying to get off it.
That’s when I got very loose. Wound up going all the way back up to 40 mg per my doc to get things back under control.
That 40 mg a day, I started that April 7.
I dropped down to 30 mg on April 15.
I dropped down to 20 mg a day, April 23.
Had my “new” 6 week 5 mg infusion of Inflectra on Thursday April 21.
Still going well.
I have mapped out a taper schedule.
My goal is to be at 5 mg of prednisone the week before and the week after my next 6 week infusion.
So. Today will be my last day at 20 mg of prednisone. April 30.
Tomorrow I’ll start 2 weeks of 15 mg. Starting May 1.
On May 15 I’ll do a drop to two weeks of 10 mg.
This puts me on track to be at 7-1/2 mg the week of 5/29.
Then the week of my next infusion, 5 mg the week of, (next infusion Monday June 6), then 5 mg the week after, week of June 12.
Thanks in advance.
