Reply To: How do the long term steroids affect you?

What you describe sounds like what I have when the steroids are too high. I’d try backing down by 2.5 or 5 mg for a week (maybe even two if you tend to be med sensitive) and re-evaluate. See if maybe there’s a better compromise dose point for you where the steroids are still doing their job, but not messing you up so badly. I also find that I tolerate the steroids better when I split them into 2-3 doses per day rather than one big dose (like one dose with each meal type of thing to reduce the risk of being wired at bedtime).
