Doc Says No to Lowering Prednisone

After waiting 10 days for my doctor to get back to me about a prednisone taper, one of his nurses called today and said he said no; he'd rather not rock the boat.

I'm disappointed but I feel he has wide experience with this and I only have mine. Glad I didn't buy that pill cutter today.

Ten days to get back to you is way too long. How much prednisone are you on?

I'm on 20mg. of prednisone per day. The goal is to go to 10, and possibly stay at that level for life.
