Hi all, how long should I be on steroids???? I had a severe flare up and was admitted into hospital for 5 days and was on 400mg hydrocortisone steroid a day, they sent me home with prednisolone starting at 40mg then taper down over an 8 week course. I was doing really well, and actually thought I was in remission but as soon as I was reduced to 25mg (the 4th week), the pain came back, the consultant has told me to go back to 40mg a day for 2 week, then taper down again....it looks like as soon as the dosage is lowered then all hell breaks loose....just wondering if anyone else has had long periods on steroids.xx sorry for long post but wanted to try and fit everything in.
