I agree that you should've had a gradual decrease of pred before stopping. Most times they will prescribe 10mgs for 3 days and 5mgs for 4 days. However, most docs don't think that being on pred for only a week need a taper. And for some people they don't need it. It sounds like you're steroid sensitive. Meaning you are getting the side effects faster than other people. I'm the same way. But give it time and these symptoms should go away.
