... discontinued it. I am confused if I can stop it suddenly?
I don't think that is safe, from my experience with prednisone, for an acute (short term) condition, you take maybe, 4-6 per day for 3-5 days, then start a step down program. Usually, the meds are on a card set up for your step down, decrease in dosage. No matter how long you have been taking it, it needs a slow decrease, the longer you've been on it the slower the step down. Never just stop prednisone with out cking. with your doc or pharmacist. Good luck.
