At the weekend I followed my rheumy's instructions and reduced my 15 mg prednisolone to 12.5 mg. I was scared that after several months of being pain-free, I would start to experience pain again. This hasn't happened, but instead I have become incredibly fatigued - even more so than usual, which I thought was impossible. I just want to doze off all the time - I sat on the sofa at 10 this morning to listen to 'Woman's Hour' and woke up at 11.15. I put my head down on the table after lunch and slept for 45 minutes.
Please, has anybody else had a similar response when tapering and do you remember how long it lasted?
