My specialist prescribed me prednisone 20 g in a dosage of 60 mg for 7 days and then decrease the doses, is this too high?
Sounds like we have many of the same issues. My understanding is that you have to be on prednisone for a long time continuously to suffer any issues from it. Conventional treatments have done nothing for me (pills, nasal sprays). My doctor has started talking to me about Xolair. Look it up and speak to your doctor about it.
