It really depends, a few days, a few weeks, it can vary a lot. The longer you've been on pred, and the quicker you taper then the worse it will be. If withdrawal symptoms last more than about 3 weeks then I'd see an endocrinologist-specialist doctor. Important that your body reawakens your adrenal system and resumes normal cortisol production (cortisol regulates sleep cycles, is a mild pain reliever) after pred. Fatigue and aches are telltale withdrawal from pred symptoms.
