I recently had a 5 week course of prednisolone. 2 weeks at 20mg, 1 week at 15mg, 1 week at 10mg and 1 week at 5mg. I finished these on 14th July. They had a really positive effect on my lupus (SCLE) symptoms. I then started 1g of Mycophenolate Mofetil on Tuesday 19th July. I was warned I might get a "kick back" from the steroids but when? And what will it involve? I have noticed the fatigue slowly creeping back in. Then today, nausea and a feeling of overwhelmingly heat & sweaty and faint. Is this steroid withdraw? Or the MMF? Just really want to know if this is normal. I felt like this quite often before diagnosis and meds, back in 2013. Thank you!
