Customer Question

I stopped taking prednisone after a few months. I took 5-15mg qd; some days I took none. I have not had any for a few days . It relieves my pain and for the last few months I have had horrible back pain and only the prednisone helped. It gave me pain relief and energy. Now I am confused and have narcolepsy symptom.
