Over the past three years I have successfully reduced my Prednisone from 60 mg to 6 mg until 2 weeks ago when I developed a chest infection. My GP recommended that I put my Pred back up to 20 mg for 1 week and then to 10 mg and then 1 mg from there. I explained to him that I was suffering from severe exhaustion the worse I have felt for the 3 years of my illness and he said I have adrenal fatigue, gave me a book by Dr Wilson, and said unfortunately this was not something he could manage, and suggested I see a private therapist. I feel that 20 to 15 is too far a drop despite the fact I have only been on the higher dose for a week. Help would be appreciated.
