5mg prednisone would be a min replacement dose for addisons/adrenal insufficiency. 7.5mg is the max dose. Taking that much for over 4 weeks would tell your adrenals they don't have to work. Was the prednisone tapered at the end of the treatment?

Yes, prednisone is one of the cortisol replacements used to treat addisons/adrenal insufficiency. Actually the one I prefer, but I use hydrocortisone as it is like what a normal body produces. Prednisone has more anti-inflammatory benefits & is used for many things.
