He is also on an antibiotic prescribed for 10 days and prednisone for 5 days with 1 refill for 5 more days and was not given step down dosage instructions. Is it dangerous for him to take 40mg per day for 10 days then just stop?
I don't have your answer, it's been years, since I've been on prednisone. But I am interested in the feedback you get also. I just started yesterday on 40mg per day myself, but for Sarcoidosis. I also will be starting an antibiotic as well shortly. I was not given directions, but my pred. 'script was for at least a month. I took it a bedtime last night with other meds to avoid nausea (first time). I should think they would always wean you off though.
Hi 40mg is in the middle for doses I take 60mg everyday for past 5 yrs. He will be fine it will help him breath trust me I know. It will open up his lungs. And he isn't on a very long course even if he needed second course just to get past being sick step down to 20mg he will be fine.good luck hope he feels better.
