I have done lots of prednisone burst in my life, mostly for asthma. Most commonly the doc would prescribe a 40-30-20-10 regime for 5 days. Have done that many, many times. In fact, my rheumy had me do that twice this summer for lupus problems. You might want to call the GP's office and verify his instructions.
