Ewan got back from MDA camp yesterday afternoon. Today, when taking his morning pills, he let it slip that he didn't take his Prednisone a couple of times. After asking a few questions, I was able to determine that he missed Sunday through Tuesday. I'm sure they just gave him the bag with all of his pills and he only took the OTC stuff that was in his normal weekly pill holder. We had to keep the prescription stuff in its original containers. If we had been allowed to store them the way he is used to them being stored, I'm sure he would have been just fine.
Anyway, my question is this. Has anyone else had their son miss several days of his steroids and what were the consequences? I know that when you stop steroid treatments, you are supposed to gradually wean off of them. Ewan has been a little moodier than normal today, but I don't know how much of that is from missing the pills and how much is from coming down off of all the fun of camp.
Also, I know that he can't "make up" for the days he missed and that we just have to put him back on his regular schedule, but how long might it take for his little body and mind to recover from this?
