Re: Someone please advise
I wonder what would suggest to your doctor that your adrenals should work again. 20 years is a very long time to be taking prednisone even for short periods. I would think your adrenals have atrophied long ago & that you have adrenal insufficiency because of it. Just my opinion. There are many many people who have had their adrenals shut down because of using steroids for one thing or another for a much shorter period. Nasal & steroid asthma sprays included.
You might do better by taking 4mg in the morning & 1mg about 4 or 5pm. I used this dose for a couple years. Even taking that 1mg earlier in the afternoon if you have trouble sleeping would be better than taking all 5 at once. Going from one morning to the next a long time between doses.
How do you feel by evening time?
