Pulmonologist 's  Response
There could be many causes for extreme tiredness. In your case, it could be a result of prednisolone withdrawal. I hope your asthma is well controlled because inadequately controlled asthma can also cause excessive weakness. If above issues are not the reason you should take a complete health check with special emphasis on Hb, blood sugar and thyroid tests. Consult a pulmonologist for proper control of asthma-preferrably with inhalers rather than oral steroids(prednisolone)
