I have been taking hydrocortisone 10 mg for about a month. I got the flu on Sunday, for the 3rd time in 2 months, and stopped taking the hydrocortisone since I was sick. Then I read the label that said you are more prone to fight off infections. So I decided to stay off the hydrocortisone. Now I am still feeling extremely week and fatigued, and have a terrible cough . I am wondering if these are symptoms of not taking the hydrocortisone for 4 days, and if so how long the steroid withdrawal symptoms last. I am wondering if I should go back on the hydrocortisone and wean off or just continue to stay off of it.
