In my experience, I have only reduced prednisone when my doctor said to do so. He has a schedule of reduction which I follow.
I've had the temporal arteritis a year and a half. my first prescription was for 20 mg. From that I gradually reduced until January 1, 2013, when I was taking none. My next blood test showed a very large increase in sed rate so I went back to 20 mg. Now (May, 2013) I am down to 6 mg. On my own I plan to reduce more slowly once I reach 5mg.
