I was prescribed Prednison for carpal tunnel. 60mg for 5 days, 40mg. for 5 days and then 20 mg for 5 days. After reading the horror stories, I want to stop. I have taken only one dose, yesterday, at 10:30 AM EST (60mg). Is it safe to stop without tampering after just one dose?
Love; Not a good idea after taking as much as you did you should do the taper, They have so much in the writing it's enough to scare anyone, but that is really long term use. taking for 5 days is not really the same on these tapering doses unless you are able to talk with the doctor.
