Short Term Prednisolone Withdrawal

I was prescribed a 40 mg dosepak and tapered over the course of 7 days for dermatitis. At day 5 it was clear that the dosage was too low and it was failing. I was then prescribed a 60 mg tapering dose that was 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10, 10. On day 5 I had a violent gastric reaction to the dose so I discontinued at that point leaving the last two 10, 10 doses. About 36 hours later I started to express symptoms of prednisolone withdrawal, which makes sense as it takes about that long for it to purge from a body. Symptoms were right down the check list. Severe drowsiness, aches, pains, mild fever, rash on forearms, acne forming on my back. Did some research but could find little guidance on how to proceed for reactions to short term dose withdrawal. Should I just ride it out? Some seemed to s...

Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Verwon. Please let me know the difference between prednisolone an...
