I have had very bad sinus pain for four weeks, went on two antibiotics and it is still there. Went to see the ENT and he told me to go on prednisone - 6 days. There was some confusion at the pharmacy - 20mg 2x/day or 40mg 1x/day, for three day and the 20mg 1x/day for three days. It is now night so I cannot call my doctor. What is the normal dose for Prednisone?
heather; you have talked to the doctor by now, But they use this so many different ways it just depends but the way you have it down I have seen it prescribed like that many many times they hit you hard with it and take you down fast. so hope you are feeling better. if not check back with the doctor.
