    i think you should go down slowly ...have you just started to reduce and after you felt pains ...

    when i reduce, it always takes a few days for my body to get use to the lower dose ...

    If you increased your dose to deal with a flare and you feel better now you can drop back to where you were, but I would recommend you actually not drop down all the way. You flared for a reason. Drop down step by step over the next two or three days and maybe stop at 3 for a few days before using the dead slow taper to get back to 2.5. This will help you find your current best lowest dose which may well be just above where you were, unfortunately. This is how things have been for me. I'm assuming you have access to 1 mg tablets. If you don't have 1 mg tablets, please try to get them. It will make life much easier for you. 😃
