adrenal suppression??

Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone could give me an opinion on this. I have taken 30 days of 40mg pred in the last two months (in short courses) and every time I stop taking it I have another attack. I have researched adrenal suppression and I have many of the symptoms (fatigue, muscle weakness, low mood and increased thirst) and am thinking that I might have adrenal suppression. What so you think? Back on more pred 3 days after the last course ended but am worried about stopping it.

Any advice would be gratefully received :)

As most side affects of pred are them things, it most likely could be. Pred is such a horrible medication and sadly caused depression for me.

Hope you find the answer soon.
