johnc, the dosage of prednisone is usually tapered down over time. I took it for about a year, but at the end the dosage was very small. During that time I was also taking mycophenolate mofetil. That drug takes awhile to take effect, which is why I was taking both at once. I continued the mycophenolate for two to three years after going off prednisone, reducing the dosage every six months.
