    Default Tapering Cytoxan

    My rheumatologist says it is time to start decreasing my Cytoxan.

    I haven't read much about how people come off Cytoxan? It is a problematic as tapering off prednisone?

    I don't remember ever tapering ctx, but it was some time ago. I think I just made a straight switch to Azathioprine.

    No taper, either. I've never heard of tapering ctx. It doesn't really make sense, as it's not therapeutic below a certain dose.

    Is your Rheumy a Wegeners specialist Flana? Ask him definitely! I am just guessing but maybe he thinking is that your on low dose of imuran and he doesn't want you to flare, so he is tapering you off the cytoxan slowly.
