Hi all, had my liver transplant nearly 3 years ago now and I have finally managed to get of the steroid prednisolone. I was tapered off quite quickly from 5 mg per day to one every other day and then stopped all in 3 weeks. This Is looking great for my diabetes but I am started to very feel tired, depressed and lethargic and I am aching all over, all my joints are stiff and I feel really heavy. After thinking about why I am feeling like this all of a sudden I am wondering if it is withdrawals from the steroid. Has any body else had withdrawals or similar symptoms when they have had their steroids stopped? If it is withdrawal symptoms how long will it last? Thank you for reading, Dizzi. x
