Prednisone

I've been on Prednisone - 60mg for 3 days, 50mg for 3 days, 40mg for 3 days and then it says stop. Isn't 40 mg high to just stop?? I thought you had to taper down.

Re: Prednisone

Oh yes....40 mg to nothing is extreme. I would call the doctor to confirm. Long term pred users like me have trouble decreasing 1 mg at a time.
