How Often Do You Take Prednisone As Needed?

How Often Do You Take Prednisone As Needed?

I am newly diagnosed with RA in 11/20 and have tapered off prednisone. My dr just prescribed 90 pills of prednisone to take as needed. I have only been on methotrexate for 2.5 months and feel like it is NOT effective yet and am still inflamed in need of prednisone.

Hi Beth, I too am on prednisolone while my rituximab kicks in. I had too infusions before Christmas so it's not had any effect yet. I feel good on Prednisolone but I know I can't have it forever and too are on a reducing dose. Just worried my infusion won't work and I'll be in pain again. Hope you get sorted quickly and you get the help you need. There's lots out there to help, its just finding what helps you. Keep safe and take care.
