Prescribed prednisone for a sinus infection but it is a tapered dose. I can't stomach taking them and wanted to know if I take 1 10mg dose for 1-5days would it still help clear infection?
I have taken a lower dose than prescribed because of it's effects on me and it still helped the problem. And I told my doctor always.
But I'm wondering why it would be used for sinus infection. Antibiotics, a neti pot and sinus massage should do well enough in my experience, and I have chronic sinus infections.
