I was prescribed 40 mg of prednisone for 5 days for an asthma flare up. My doctor did not prescribe me any additional dosages since my asthma has since improved, my lungs are clear & my breathing is good. Is it ok that he did not prescribe any further doses to taper me off the med? I completed the treatment as prescribed/instructed.
