I was prescribed prednisone (20mg) for my asthma and I took my first dosage yesterday. The side affects are awful and I plan to go to my doctor in a week since I have an appointment scheduled. Is it possible to stop taking prednisone if I only took it for a day without tapering down? It’s such a low dosage and I only have to take it once a day. I can’t call my doctor today because the office is closed but I’m really worried about stopping the medication. What do you guys believe I should do?
