I just got off prednisone a week or two ago and it was hard!!! I started out at 60, then 40, then 20 and I swear, when I got down to 10 and went lower it was very, very hard. I had depression, anxiety, mood swings...I would cry at anything and everything! It was hard to get up and go to work. I also had acne as well that kicked in towards the end of using it. My patience level, especially with drivers, was at about zero. I also got really bad headaches the last week or two I was on it.
The week I actually stopped taking it was a relief! I started to feel like myself again.
Hang in there and know we are all here for you!
sr5599- Wanted to ee how you were doing with coming off the steroids? Ive been off for almost a week after being on them for 9 months. So far all is good here. Hope all is going good with you as well
