Here is my two cents worth :)
My rheumy said that anything below 5mg would be okay but if I could come off I should. My pharmacist agreed. I have had to taper VERY VERY VERY slowly over the past 5 years ( I started at 40mg) - usually .5 or 1mg at a time. My body LOVES pred and wants me to take it and it does help. I would hesitate to take it forever unless it made all the diffrence in the world. I am now off pred (as of March 21st) and hope to stay off. My body was very unhappy to begin with but things are pretty good now. I use naproxen for days I just have to have some relief.
