I think your doctor has everything under control - you could ask him if taking something like Deselex antihistamine will be beneficial. If you take high levels of cortisone and suddenly stop your adrenal glands can be supressed and you can develop problems if you then have stress (like being ill or having anaesthetic) IF he tapered you this time cortisol testing is not necessary ( it is a blood test) Long term cortisol treatment may cause weight gain and water retention.
