I think taking the 5 mg Prednisone every other day works for me when there is very little stress in my life. However when my stress levels go up I crash a bit, feel nauseated, listless, and have muscle weakness. I tried to take 2.5 mg Prednisone every day instead of the 5 every other day and really could not tell an energy level difference. I assume because the half life is so long on Prednisone and I was still taking the Florinef and Prempro every day. My doctor lets me take a little more Synthroid than his tests indicate, which also helps. Most of the time my life is pretty stress free. I live in the country, my family life is good etc. Nebraska Lady
