Bryan, prednisone certainly has to be tapered down, eventually to zero. You don’t ant to take it forever even if it helps. In my case, I was prescribed mycophenolate mofetil at the same time. As it was explained to me, MM takes awhile to take effect. By the time I was off prednisone, the MM replaced it. After another year or so, I started tapering down the MM and I am now off everything.
