My husband has had RA for 5 years and is in the process of tapering his prednisone...Everytime he cuts it back he goes into severe withdrawal-
shakes beyond, low temp, high temp, night sweats, shivering huge amount of allergies, extreme tiredness. Does anybody know how long this process takes and if the adrenal glands ever start reproducing cortisol on their own??? We need huge help on this because everytime he goes to cut bac and has this happen, DR's tell him to increase the preds...They think it is his arthritis causing this but it is Adrenal gland exhaustion....We have researched this forever....I know that when you are on preds the med produces cortisol for you...Need some insight....
Can anyone out there help or has anyone been through this at all??? We need to know cause DR's are not helping...THANKS IN ADVANCE...
