Yes, some people who are on steroids can just stop responding to them. It's sort of makes your body into that of a drug addict.....it wants more and more to get that "fix". Of course, I'm not saying this about everyone who has ever been on pred, but I have seen it where one person will start not responding as well to the steroids as before. I would say that you are still in your existing flare - if by the time it comes to taper and you are still having symptoms or if your symptoms get worse then you should call your doctor.
