I was prescribed prednisone for the first time in my life 7 days ago. This is the plan they have me on:
40mg for 3 days, then 30mg for 3 days, then 20mg for 3 days, then 10 mg for 3 days.
So far I've been have increased heart rate and anxiety.
Is this a safe way to wean off prednisone or is there possible severe withdrawal?
I'm a young adult female if that helps.
