After 2 years on pred I am finally down to 1mg. However I am very tired and lacking in energy and have stiff joints. Is this normal before heading to zero? I have just taken early retirement but recently my father died and there has been family friction. I am reluctant to head to zero feeling like this but not sure if fatigue increases the nearer you get to 0. And once you are at zero do you feel back to normal soon after? I seem to remember reading ages ago here that it takes a year?
