Today's is my last day of taking 10mg of prednisolone then on Wednesday I'm taking 5mg every other day for a week for a week then stopping. This taper is advised from my respiratory medicine doctor. So far things haven't been too bad. My asthma has got worse but not unbearable. I was extremely cautious about doing this as I have read so many posts lately about dropping to quicky. I suppose only time will tell. 1 week tomorrow and I'll be hopefully prednisolone free. I will never take this drug again long term or at all the long term side effects are worse than the condition it's supposed to treat. Fingers crossed.
