question

How important is it that one gets completely off of western drugs while taking Chinese medicine? More specifically, with autoimmune diseases?
For example, I have started taking Chinese medicine. Before that, I was on alot of immune system supressants- I mostly got off of those, but prednisone, which messes with the liver, cannot be taken off immediately because it causes problems with the liver's ability to make steroids.
And also, lisenopril which causes blood vessels to relax.

I will ask my doctor, of course but I am curious about the opinions here as well.

Thank you, everyone!
