I just wondered whether it is possible to develop any sort of steroid resistance or tolerance? And if so how and why might this happen?
Admittedy my asthma has become much worse over a period of time, but dosages of steroids which in the past used to help (going back to early teens) is now not working. I have tried several times to taper down, but 30mg seems to be the point at which any control is lost and still sympotmatic upto 40.
I don't seem to get a lot of side effects at 35mg and below. Well, except for a lot of asthma symptoms!
I am just wondering, because I am a real science geek. Perhaps its just because my asthma is now much worse (severe brittle diagnosis).
Has anyone got any experience with this, or able to shed any light?
