I started prednisone a couple weeks ago. It's been 4-5 years since I've been on it. We started at 40mg for a week, then 30, and yesterday I dropped to 20. Today I feel awful. Lightheaded, nauseous, and have diarrhea. I think last time I was on pred I did a slower taper going down by 5mg every 5 days. Every time I take prednisone the side effects get worse for me, insomnia, irritability, mood swings. I'm wondering if I'm more sensitive this time to the change in dose each week. Is that possible?
