@jullieh A taper off prednisone with followup on your bloodwork, to monitor you, may be the only way you'll know. What have your Dr's said the reason for the prednisone at this time is? My husband was put on prednisone some time after his transplant, because his white blood cell count went too low, and remains on a low dose. They decreased his dosage of microphenolate, but kept the tacrolimus dose the same. It is always a balancing act with medications, and how your labs are telling the inside story to the medical professionals.
