I’ve been on and off prednisone for 2 years. Frankly, it’s saved me not only hospital trips, but probably my life. That said, I hate it. I get moody, my skin dries out, I get headaches, which make me MORE moody… It’s not a fun drug.
I get 25mg tablets from my doctor. I do two days on two tablets, two days on one tablet, and then two days on half a tablet. That seems to avoid the worst of the fatigue coming off it.
Honestly, it annoys me that they just give me a bottle of tablets. It would be so much easier if they just gave me a sheet of tablets that gradually lowered the dose.
