I took the pill for a back pain I have but it was gone within the second day so I stopped but a month later the pain is back and I have a bad cold so I wanted to know if I can take the rest of the four days a month later
So it’s an immunosuppressant and taking it while sick may not be a good idea. The reason you taper the dosage is because you can go through a serious discontinuation syndrome. So don’t do that next time you do a steroid pack! If you weren’t sick, I’d say go for it. But since you are, wait.
