So I've been reading the posts on here for a few weeks now, finally decided to post, you all seem so helpful with experiences and info!
I've been on 40mg pred for a couple of months because of a number of exacerbations, pneumonia and hospital admissions within a couple of weeks. Aside from the weight gain things were going great. Now I've started tapering by 5mg every three days, and since then I've not slept well at all! I'm awake and coughing by 3 am, every night for the last 6 nights, I'm so tired! Has anybody else found they get the side effects worse when they are weaning rather than when they are taking the high dose? I'm hoping it stops once I've weaned back to my usual 10mg maintenance dose.
Thanks for reading!
