Prednisolone crash?

Hi I’m currently on day 3 of a 5 day course of 500mg prednisolone. I’m doing ok bit jittery and tired etc but I’m concerned about the grass I have heard about that happens after, could someone tell me what I could expect to happen and how long will it last? Thanks in advance. X

Hey, you might not have a noticeable crash, a lot of people don’t

Mine is a bit rubbish, I feel pretty sore all over for a couple of days but so worth it for me

Crashing after a high dose of steroids must be quite rare or they wouldn’t prescribe it…would they?

I understand that years ago people were weaned off the high dose, my MS Nurse tells me these days it isn’t felt necessary to do this.

Best wishes
