Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to ' Ask a doctor service ' ,
It was a very wise decision to stop these drugs .
As a fact , withdrawal from these cause symptoms but these do not persist for 4 years .
I have seen such patients who took steroids on advise of some quacks .
Now , lets come to symptoms .
As you were taking steroids , you may be having some gut infection , so please undergo stool examination in lab .
Start any over the counter probiotic .
For , low energy or muscle pains , start any over the counter multivitamins multimineral combination .
Take well balanced diet .
Start meditation and deep breathing exercises .
If anxiety is more , you may take antianxiety drug as tab clonazepam half in morning and one at night .
But these are to be taken for 6 weeks only .
I think , your problems will be taken care with these tips .
If you need any further help , you can come back via follow up question .
With Regards , Dr Varinder Joshi .
