I've been on 40 mg/day of Prednesone for almost five weeks because of asthma and am finally in the tapering-off phase. Are my cramps from the meds or lack of proper electrolytes? I was having the cramping in my legs but those have diminished. I've been supplementing potassium and magnesium, but don't know what else to do.
