Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
These symptoms suggest medication withdrawal related symptoms.
Low body temperature, sweating and watery diarrhea can be caused by the prednisone withdrawal.
Your body does not produce enough cortisol and that can trigger these symptoms.
Adrenal insufficiency is the common cause.
Also quetiapine is a strong medication --withdrawal symptoms can be severe.
You need to see your doctor for a clniical evaluation --rule out any metabolic disorders like thyroid, diabetes, electrolyte imbalances for example.
You should resume these medications as well after discussing with your doctor.
You can gradually taper off if needed.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
