Today is the 7th day my son is at 40mg of Prednisone. Tomorrow he is to drop to 30mg for one week, then to 20mg...
He is improved, but still 2-3 trip to the bathroom per day, semi formed, no blood for a couple days.
Is it really time to drop down his dose or does he need to stay at 40 until things really get solid and better? We see the doctor tomorrow and I will ask him, but son will already be at 30 then.
The pred kicked in really quickly for my daughter! It seems to take a bit longer for my son. Last flare it took 13 days before we saw any change.
