but when i stop prednisone i feel so tired and no appetite i dont eat like before and if i eat i eat little

Hi, Micho.

It's not unusual to feel tired, weak, and have no appetite when you stop prednisone. From the schedule you've described it sounds like you tapered off a large dose of prednisone very quickly. Such a fast taper might not have given your adrenal glands a chance to kick in. That would account for your feeling poorly. Your doctor can do an ACTH stimulation test to see if your adrenals are working. If not, you may need a regimen to get them back in action by taking a small dose of prednisone every other day or every third day.

Regards,
Ruth
