You're tapering the pred....you'll see rebound symptoms from what understand.
We all will have some increase and decrease of symptoms while healing. Especailly on prednisone..but I've never been on it, info is from what I've read.
When you taper the pred...alternate the dosage by doing 5, 2.5, 5, 2.5, 5, 2.5....2.5, 2.5...etc.
