Hello, I don't usually post on this board but I have always had asthma which is usually well controlled with Seritide & the odd puff of Ventolin when required. Earlier this week I caught a cold which rapidly went to my chest & the asthma got really bad.
My Dr diagnosed Bronchitis & put me on antibiotics & prednisolone. I have had prednisolone before but usually about 10 mg a day. This time my Dr has prescribed 50 mg a day for the 1st 3 days & then tapering doses! This seems a really high dose to me! Has anyone else had this sort of dose before in similar circumstances?- admittedly it is only for the short term & I'll go back in another week for a further check up. Thanks for reading & for any information you might have!
