I have been on varying doses of prednisone since August.
I am now down to 5mg per day.
I am having terrible anxiety and panic attacks on this dosage.
I want to get off this medicine as quickly as possible but not risk adrenal gland issue.
How long should I do 5mg for?
Should I then go to none or get a script for 1mg tablets to taper even more?
Thanks so much!
