You want to talk about high dose prednisone, I used to take 240mg a day for my asthma! I've been on 15-40mg a day for CH now for 15 months now, mostly at the lower end of that scale. You can feel your prednisone levels rising and falling during the course of a day and that "high" that you get is not necessarily a nice feeling. Yes, I went into work this morning on 3 hours sleep and appreciated being able to flip into overdrive, but the feeling that your skin is crawling and you want to jump out of it is horrible. And I'm not even talking about the long term effects. Use it wisely, taper as soon as possible then get off and stay off if possible. Good luck.
