My husband's general practitioner suspect's he may have Addison's Disease. She is prescribing 5 mg of Prednisone. He was on a higher dosage for about a decade due to ulcerative colitis. He has since had his colon removed. His symptoms appear to line up with this diagnosis, however, he tapered off prednisone in the past six months. Withdrawal from this drug seems to have similar symptoms. I am wondering if 5mg is going to help him feel better or if he needs to go on a higher dosage. Any experience with this disease? I would love to learn from your experience if you are willing to share it here. Thanks.
