Hello, I am wondering if someone can help me with a plan for prednisone with a starting dose of 80mg per day. My Dr. is of little help. She prescribed 40mg/day for 10 days. This did not help my exacerbation. I told her I had to raise the dose to the 60mg/day, but I then had to raise it to 80mg. I am now on day 2 of 80mg and don't have a plan for the duration.
I think I should stay on a 3 week course, but don't have a plan for the taper. Can anyone help? I realize I am asking for help that I should be getting from a Dr., so if anyone is hesitant to help I understand. I feel like I am all alone here. My Dr. isn't much help. I am having a pulmonary function test today as part of the plan for me to see a pulmonologist, but in the meantime feel like I am managing this all on my own. It is not helping with the anxiety of uncontrolled asthma. Thanks!!
