Just finished 5 day course for significant flare. Don't know if what I am feeling now is post steroid hangover or lesion activity or addition of Neurontin 300 mg TID or just a bad mix of all three?
How long does the steroid stay in ones system after last dose?
Any thoughts?

I hope you are feeling better now. It takes me about 5 to 7 days to feel like the solumdrol is out. Some people opt for a taper to make the withdrawal easier. I hate it but I just want it over with as fast as possible. I am not sure how long the steriods stay in you but the anti-inflammatory response is suppose to last for a few weeks.
