Hello Everybody. It's 4.20 am and I can't sleep because of wheezing from asthma. Saw Senior nurse, at our surgery, today i.e. Wed, who increased the Pred to 40 mg for 5 days. My question is; returning to my present dose of 3 mg, thereafter, do I have to taper to 3 mg or can I just 'jump' back to 3 mg?? I forgot to ask the nurse, and I don't like to second-guess Pred. dosages. Well, I am going on the nebuliser now, so by the time you read this, I will , hopefully, be in the Land of Nod. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
