A great article we found about Prednisone (steroid) withdrawal.
Prednisone Withdrawal: As a patient with #myositis, you are likely on, or have been on, prednisone at some point. Prednisone is a man-made substance that reduces inflammation quickly and that is why it is used as a first-line treatment in most forms of myositis. But what happens when it is time to taper? GO SLOW!
“Depending on how long you’ve been taking prednisone, your withdrawal symptoms may last from a few weeks to up to 12 months. This time will likely be much shorter if you follow your doctor’s instructions for slowly tapering your dosage of prednisone when you stop taking it.”
