Detox from prednisone
How can I get detox the prednisone out of my system.  I was prescribed a nine day script for a rash but after the 3rd day I began to feel really adverse side effects like stomache upset and trouble sleeping.  I feel so unhuman and I want to detox my system. Help!

Prednisone has a half life of about 36 to 48 hours... it is a medication that one should not quit, but should taper off - and then it should be out of the body in a week or two.

Eat with the pill and that should help with the stomach ache - but the lack of sleep is due to the long lasting effects of the pill and its interference with the diurnal rhythm... that will go away once the pills go away.
