Prednisone dosage is determined by the condition being treated and your response to the drug. Typical starting doses can range from 5 - 60 mg a day.Once you respond to the drug, which you already know, your physician will lower the dose gradually to the minimum effective amount.
My hubby has always started on the higher end as the medications will rapidly reduce inflammation. Long term use of Prednisone is avoided whenever possible. I hope this helps you in some small way.
