If you suddenly stop predisone after being on it for a while it could casue many withdrawal symptoms including muscle aches, fever, low blood pressure, and nausea and vomiting.

I am sorry, my computer shut down by mistake. Let me continue from where i left off.
... It can actually be very dangerous as it could adversely affect your adrenal gland. The reason for this is that while you are taking predisolone, your body relies on you getting steroids from an outside source and it decreases its own production. You have to slowly decrease predisolone so that your body "realizes" that it has to start making its own supply of steroids. Now, about treatment, the only treatment is slowly coming off the steroids. Advil will help for the pain but it will not prevent the potential dangerous withdrawal symptoms.
Best of luck,
