My Support Groups:
I was on prednisone (alongside Salofalk) for roughly 3 years straight, my disease was entirely controlled by it. Whenever they tried to taper off of it I would flare. Over the course of my time on it my dose would vary depending on the circumstances, if I was in the hospital I would be put on IV steroids but always issue transferring back to pred so I would mildly flare and the does would get bumped up. The maximum dose I was on was 60mg daily, for the last year or so my maintaining dose was 5 or 10mg daily, I can't quite recall as I haven't been on it in 2.5 years.

I had kenalog 80mg injection then pred for a year, 50mg start. I rarely got below 20mg before finally tapering off.
