I've been taking 10mg a day for six months. Now, I have a new treatment, but I still feel the side effects of the prednisone
How long have you been off prednisone? I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but I did a bit of poking around in Google and found some answers that seem to indicate that it depends on how long you were on the medication. For instance, I found one answer that says if you been on prednisone for five months, it can take up to five months for it to leave your system. However, whether that means that it can take up to five months to wean off it or if it takes up to five months after stopping the medication before it's completely gone, I don't know. I would recommend you speak to your pharmacist or doctor about this.
Best of luck,

I took it for a week
a one-week dose should be out of your body fairly quickly. However, I recommend you ask your pharmacist or rheumatologist for the expert opinion.
