My Rheumy is weaning me down also but more slowly than that . He said that the chance of a reoccurrence is far greater if you come off too quickly. So 15 mgs / 2 weeks12.5/2 weeks 10/ 2 weeks and then 1 Mg per month so I will be on for at,least a,year .. he is monitoring blood work monthly however so have to trust him
