Prednisone

  • By CMorg

    Just curious about how many people are on Prednisone full time and how things have been since being on Prednisone. I’ve been on it full time for about a year and a half now and have still had flare ups trying to wean off and when I’ve gotten sick. Does dosage tend to increase the longer you are on it?

    I’m currently (fingers crossed) only taking 4mg. What are others on?
