I am currently at 4 mg of steroids. I tried to go to 3.5 mg last week. I had a lot of side effects after 5 mg, and my GI suspended my taper for 4 weeks. I then took two weeks going from 5mg to 4mg. I was dropping by half mg, but alternating days. Felt pretty good, so I didn't think anything of doing the half mg drop last week and then alternating. The problem is, after one day on 3.5, I had terrible side effects the next day despite going back to 4 mg, and staying there. Almost a week later, I can't shake some of the issues. I went to my PCP a while back hoping for help. She pretty much just said I needed to take iron supplements. Those few of you that had issues with steroid taper and went to an Endocrinologist, what did they do for you?
