Weaning prednisone but seem to...

Weaning pred but seem to have a depressed immune system as a result because I'm catching a lot of bugs lately which I wasn't before. It could be coincidental. It's my last 5 mg that the rheumy put me on but my GP told me to see if I could get off of it. I have been on prednisone for many years. I went down by half of the 5 mg and this is when I started getting sick. I even have a swollen lymph node in my neck. I told the GP about it and he didn't check anything and told me it can take years since I've been on it for many years. When I asked if there is something he can give me to help, he said there is nothing and that was that. Now I'm looking to help myself by building my immune system or something.
