At what low dose of prednisone do you start to making some of your own ?
Hello. The body naturally makes it's own steroid from the adrenal glands of 8 or 9 units. When you drop prednisone to that range, it can be very slow getting off. It all depends upon how long your adrenals shut down and how long they need to start producing again. Some people end up on one or two mg forever. Nothing to worry about. Some get off more swiftly, like you may because it hasn't been a year or so. Your doctor will be very important for that part. Good luck.
