As I write this I am coming to the end of another course of prednisilone - weaning off it this time - doctor's orders. The consultant told me no need, but my GP really wants me to try and break the up and down cycle and says you need to wean off as after two weeks on pred the body starts to be fooled into thinking it doesn't need to make any steroid of it's own.
Well, I'm giving it a go and see how I progress, but I'm fed up with not sleeping properly and will be glad to get to the end.
The up side is that my breathing is much better at the moment and not too much coughing going on.
Do other people go through the 'weaning' process or do you simply stop steroids after two weeks. How are you affected?
