Tapering Off Prednisone

Hi,

Doctors have tried for 2.5 years to wean me off Prednisone. Even with monthly IVIG infusion treatments,, I am unable to go below 9mg of Prednisone. My CK level elevates, and I get a good amount of pain from inflammation.

Has anyone ever had problems weaning off Prednsione?
