Hi Allied, welcome to the forum! I take prednisone which is pretty close to the same thing. You have to be very carful when you stop taking it because you can end up getting very sick. That is why doctors prefer to taper people off of it.
Here is a link to hopfully answer some of your questions.
I look forward to getting to know you. I hope you post again soon.
God Bless
