Were you looking for information about Prednisone Withdrawal? Prednisone withdrawl is a common misspelling of prednisone withdrawal.
You should generally not stop taking prednisone without first talking with your healthcare provider. If you abruptly stop taking prednisone, withdrawal symptoms may occur. These symptoms may include muscle pain or joint pain, a fever, difficulty breathing, and loss of appetite.
The longer you have been taking prednisone (and the higher your prednisone dosage), the longer it generally takes to taper off prednisone. Your healthcare provider may wean you off the medication slowly to help prevent withdrawal symptoms. If you experience any bothersome symptoms after you stop taking it, let your healthcare provider know.
