From this study (5 years ago):
I have stopped taking the prednisone last week. I am exhausted.. could sleep all day! not normal for me. I am taking vitamins, eating right. I take Levothroxin daily and I feel like I'm taking a placebo!!!
Is there a chance that my thyroid has changed since I took the prednisone?
