My consultant proscribed a taper from 20 mg per day for a week, then 10 mg per day for a week, then 5 mg per day, while I am waiting for xolair (allergic asthma). He stated that 5 mg will minimize any side effects. To me, the "side effect" of not being able to work and having to stay at home in a pressurized HEPA chamber 24-7 feels worse than potential side effects. Well, I did not convince him this time to let me have more than 5 mg per day. I am lucky to have him as my consultant, but I wonder how high one can do on prednisolone if staying on it for months/years?
Thank you all in advance!
