    Why am I sleeping so much after tapering off prednisone?

    I have been on prednisone for 3 years trying to taper from it.

    I recently got down to 3 mg but I had to up the dosage again so was on 13mg for a few days then taper again.

    After tapering down I have become extremely sleepy and sleeping all day. Could this be from the tapering of the prednsone or could it be something else?
