Okay, so my face is really breaking out in acne. I have been on prednisone, 10 mg daily, for over a month. My doctor said he really wants me to slowly get off the drug, but he really didn't say what to do. He have me two more months of it. Is it the prednisone causing my acne, correct, and not Plaquenil?
About three days ago, I took one 10 mg tablet, cut it in half, and then one of the halves into half. So, I took, in effect, 7.5 mg, instead of 10 mg. I have been on this dose for three days now. The first two days were yuck. My elbows really hurt, and I felt worse than usual. Today, I am a little better. My doctor is hard to get a hold of, and I suppose I can call my pharmacist.
I realize that you guys should not be advising my drugs, but I was curious what a typical taper schedule looks like as a point of reference.
