Prednisone Update

Prednisone Update by Iris Carden

You might have noticed over the past couple of weeks I’ve missed a few of my deadlines, and substituted expected posts with excerpts from my books. At the same time my reviews in the Week in Review have been much more sparse.

What’s happening, you ask? Or you don’t ask because either you didn’t notice or weren’t bothered.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, my new rheumatologist recommended I wean off prednisone. I’m reducing by .5mg a day each fortnight. So far I’m down from 5mg a day to 3mg.

My pain levels are up significantly, so I’m not getting things done. Ultimately, I’m sure there will be some more tweaks to my medication to cover the loss of the prednisone. Until then, I’m probably going to continue to be very unreliable.
