That's OK. You have to try to keep your steroid dosage at the minimum. Long term steroid usage may cause lots of side effects. The dose should be around 5-6mg of prednisolone equivalent and methotrexate should be escalated to 30mg/ week as per your disease activity. Ensure that your ESR is less than 10 and CRP is less than 1 mg/ L.
