I have had Ra for 3 Years. I am on Methatrexate, 25 mg, Remicade, 300mg, and Prednisone 5 mg. I am trying to get weaned off the prednisone. I have tried it the last two years and when I get to 2 mg, I flare. Currently, I am at 3 mg. I feel achy and are having problems with my feet and lower back. Is there anything else I can take in place of the prednisone?
My RA is under control and I dont have any severe pain. I am afraid I will flare again and be back at square one. But, I dont like the way I feel now at 3 mg. At 5 mg , I feel great. I would appreciate your advise. k. tate
