I was taking methylprednisolone 4mg for chronic asthma last summer. Present day: I cannot seem to stop taking this medication. My doctor has weaned me down to 1mg every other day. Being on this drug for this period of time, I don't feel well, have achy joints, experience chills, fatigue and loss of appetite. Is there a way to wean myself off this medication where I am no longer taking it? (asthma is under control with Advair & Alvesco). Thanks for your help, in advance.
