I've been on prednisone for two weeks at 30mg but it's not actually helping me and I don't like being on this drug anyway. I was wondering, can I start tapering now and if so, how slowly must I do so?? I'm only 18 so I really do not have any desire to be on this awful drug

(My set prescription was: 30mg for 4 weeks, 20mg for 4 weeks and then 10mg for 4 weeks, i want to discontinue my dose ASAP)

No, follow the taper. The withdrawal side effects are terrible and can lead to death.
