thank you for that additional information.
You are messing with a very powerful medication by using it the way you are......
It is likely that you messed up your entire endocrine system, immune system, thyroid and -- basically -- the majority of your body with the way you have been taking this medication.
Here is a very well written article from a highly respected source which, on page two, goes over the very serious dangers of what you have been doing:
So. What to do?
Get into see an internal medicine MD ASAP for a compete physical exam and laboratory workup to see where your body stands at this point. After this testing and exam the physician may need to put you back on the steroids and do a safe, controlled taper of the prednisolone.
If the only thing that goes wrong is a bit of hair loss you should count yourself lucky.
Does this make sense to you?
I realize that this was not the answer you were hoping to hear but it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information.
