Different GIs have differing methods. My previous GI had to get me off of Prednisone quickly when I developed a hypertensive crisis [severe rise in BP]. I was on 35 mg at the time and had been on prednisone for a few weeks at the time. The fastest they would taper me down was decreasing me 5 mg every 3 days. It took about
2 weeks if I remember correctly. I would think that your doctor should be able to get you safely off of 20 mg in a couple weeks IF he is agreeable and has no reason to keep you on it longer. The big concern naturally is whether you symptoms will return.
