Prednisone is usually given with a large dose the first day, then tapering off. They do this by ordering a low dose pill, then ordering a large amount the first day then tapering it. This is the way it sounds like yours is ordered. Prednisone is a drug that your body gets used to having, rapidly, and therefore has to be tapered off of, even if you're only on it for a few days.
