I am on 20 mg. prednisone twice a day for a bronchitis infection.plus Levaquin.only going to be on the pred for 10 days. would it still require a tapering schedule. i dont take pred very often. but it sure has helped my crohn's symptoms. bronchitis is getting better.
have a super weekend.

I'm glad it's helping Julie. I hope the taper goes easy.

I feel a whole lot more the way I do now than I did a little while ago.
