Is it safe to go off prednisone after just taking it for 3 days - 50mg for 2 days and 40mg 3rd day?

Yes. For that amount of time you will be ok. I take it that it wasn't prescribed this way. Normally they prescribed a taper starting with 50 or 60 mg then tapering down dosages every 3 days until the end. Or they prescribe a burst, which is 50 mg for 5 days.
