Are you on Prednisone for inflammatory problems, Diabetes, Lupus, Arthritis or other autoimmune problems? I assume your talking about 5mg a day. Although that's a low does it still can cause unwanted side effects. I only took it once for a drug reaction. I have always refused cortisone shots or other steroids but not everyone has that option.
As I understand it Statin drugs may help lower your CRP levels. High CRP levels may also be an indicator of heart disease. But it can mean many things that only a physician can reliably diagnose. I don't blame you for wanting off Prednisone.
Good luck,
Jake

I have PMR, inflammatory. My rheumatologist seems rather disinterested, perhaps I should return to my GP.
