if you have some reactions taking the pill i suggest you stop immediately and consult your physician

Re: I need to stop taking prednisone after 2 days

Yes, you can stop. I have a friend whose doc put her on 60mg for 5 days and then stop...no tapering...as the treatment. woah, didn't realise.
But, you've only been on it 2 days, no problem to drop it.

Why were you prescribed pred...and what was the regimen the doc gave you for it? Was it to taper over 10 days or to continue?
