Yes, when tapering predisone, I would have a day or two that were "off" after a taper down.
I was steroid dependent, so my process was a little different. From 40mg to 20 mg, I would taper by 5mg every week. From 20mg to 0mg, I would taper by 2.5mg every week or two - depending on symptoms.
Pan-colitis and GERD diagnosed May 2003
Asacol 12 per day, Azathioprine 75mg, Rowasa and Canasa as needed
Aciphex, Effexor XR, BCP, Rhinocort nasal spray
Forvia and a Probiotic
Osteopenia (hip and spine) from prednisone use. Started Azathioprine because I was steroid dependent.
