Prednisone Question

Hello all,

I have been on prednisone for about 5 months now (for Myasthenia Gravis)and at one point I was on 60mg (12 tablets). I also was on Calcium/Vitamin D/stomach pills to counter some of the long term effects of Prednisone. I have not touched alcohol for 8 months.

I have brought myself down to 5mg of prednisone (1tablet) every other day, w/o having any of my Myasthenia Gravis symptoms. My question is, at this low dosage, is it safe to consume alchohol at this time? PS. I don't drink hard liquor.

Thanks!
