I have found this forum most helpful over the past four years so many thanks to all contributors. I have been reducing pred. very slowly just 1mg on three more days and I will be the latest member of club zero. I would like some advice if anyone can help please. Over the past three or four weeks I have found getting started in the mornings more and more difficult. For the first hour I have no energy or strength but it gradually returns and then I am relatively normal. Is it anything to do with stopping pred or perhaps just part of getting older. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
