I was given a regimen of prednisone for a swollen lip possibly caused by a insect or something outdoors, we still aren't sure. I was prescribed 40mg once daily for 5 days and then 20 mg once daily for 5 days. I did not have any side effects while taking it, but I am wondering what to expect now that I have taken my last dose. Will my lip swell again? Will there be any withdrawal or any after effects? Maybe I am just worrying. Anyone who has had experience with a similar situation any insight would be great! Thanks

If the swelling comes back, you should have an allergy test to determine the cause. But short spurts of pred should do your body no harm.
