Quit Prednisone for a week now

Well no ill effects so far, I hoped I wouldn't have to reduce the dosage by breaking tabs in half,and doing it over a few months. That is what happened the first time after taking prednisone for a few years daily.I am suprised,I feel pretty good again, the next step is reducing the Arava.

Reducing meds, less stress

Well, I have started cutting the prednisone dose in half this past week, and I still feel good. Haven't had any pain to speak of in a couple of weeks now. I will give it a few weeks, than stop the prednisone, next step is cutting back on the Arava.
I continue to work part time, and find less stress has been helpful to live a regular life. I could work full time, and the pay is good, but I seem to be enjoying this partial retirement.
