Does anyone know at what point you can have adrenal suppression. My son was on alternate day pred (10mg) from Jan to Sep last year. He then had 3 doses of 80mg Triamcinolone injections from Sep to Dec with three 5 day courses of 40mg pred as well. Since he stoppped the injections he has had a further 3 short courses (5 - 7 days) of 40mg pred in 1 month, has not grown in the last 5 months and has cushingoid features.
Over the past year he has had 4 episodes of severe headache followed by dizziness and vomitting and have been told by the gp each time it's a virus but no one else in my family catches it and it has not been a problem at school. Was wondering if this might be anything to do with the steroids? The pharmacist mentioned something about these symptoms when he handed over a steroid card.
Any help appreciated.
