Opinions are like @ssholes, everyone has one and they stink. When it comes to prednisone discuss it with your doctor, we are here for support, but the last thing i want to see is someone suggesting harmful info due to ignorance and you getting hurt. That maybe why no one has replied yet. Coming off prednisone too fast can be deadly. Last i checked deadly is worse than sickly. Hope you feel better soon.
