    Some good old meditation or time to yourself.

    Some Lean Xtreme will do the trick, or some type of 7alpha/7beta hydroxy supplement

    Prednisone is a potent glucocorticoid just like cortisol is. It doesn't raise cortisol, it takes the place of cortisol.

    But are you off of it now? If you are off, there isn't much to be concerned about it.

    If you are still on it, stick it out. Keep calories just above maintenance, keep sodium intake low, and accept a little fat gain.

    It can take many months for your adrenal corticoids to recover from Prednisone. Just ease back into your workouts slowly. I'm not sure that taking Lean Xtreme or cortisol lowering agents is the right thing to do here. Your adrenals get shut down by Pred so you want them to get back online ASAP and LX may inhibit this process.

    My wife had some success using Rhodiola rosae after her 5 week pred cycle. It seemed to help with mood and endurance without messing with her adrenals. This is of course, purely anecdotal. Adrenals are a complex system.
