How to address PMR pain while decreasing prednisone
Thanks. I"ll try going up to 5 mgs for a few days. I only was put on 10 mgs. to start with so have been reducing very slowly down to 4 mgs.

The standard dosage is 15 to 25 mgs in the beginning. Weight of patient and/or the effectiveness of the pills has much to do with dosage. You are at the level where your adrenals are effected.
