... doctor suggested using hydrocortisone instead of prednisone, so I had her switched , but she just didn't seem right after that. So I asked her doctor to switch her back to prednisone. He said she would have to go through a transition before she can get back to 5mg. He said to give her 8 (prednisone @5mg) per day, 3× per day for 3 days, then 7 pills 3× per day for 3 days, so on until she gets to 1 pill. Please tell me this is alright!
