How long does it take for prednisone to clear the body?
 
I've been on it for years. I have been tapering since Sept and as of April 1st have come off it entirely. I don't feel all that great. My doctor said he would take an ACTH test to see if I am still producing my own cortisol. Is it too soon for this type of test or do I have to be off it longer?
