... it is two days now at 7 mg but still in pain alot How long dose it take for the new dose to work again ? I have polymalgia
Its not good to be on Prednisone long term. If the new dose dont work then u need to talk with your dr. Prednisone helps with inflammation. After being on and getting use to a higher dose it stands to reason that a lower dose dont help you as well. Your body may need a rest from it for awhile. Usually when they decrease your dose its because they are tapering you off of it. Not trying to get symptom relief with a lower dose.
