I am tapered down to 1mg prednisone per day. I have RA. I have 4 left. I want to save them and take them on New Years Day so I can dance with my husband. Will that hurt me and what will it do to my body. What to expect?
Are you on a biologic yet? Have you asked your doctor about that? If you are tapering off 1mg a day, augment with NSAID just before you go dancing. Just a thought. Do you have a "Ask a Nurse" number you can call?
I have RA as well. Prednisone put 50plus pounds on me. I am now on Humira, Sulfasalazine, and methotrexate.
Just a thought...
