Yesterday I finished my first long-course of pred. It did the trick in terms of stopping a bad exacerbation and clearing up the ongoing inflammation in my lungs.
However, I had pretty bad side effects on the pred, but I feel like I'm also having them in coming off it.
My dosage/taper was 2 weeks on 40mg, 2 weeks on 10mg and a week on 5mg. I finished yesterday so I'm now down to zero.
Does anyone have experience of how long it takes to feel 'normal' again on this kind of taper? I'm aware that the pred is still making its way out of my system, so it won't really hit me for a day or two more, and already I feel pretty ropey, both physically and in terms of anxiety and so on.
Grateful for any thoughts...
