Prednisone for other reason

I’m being tested and treated as if I have Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have been on a 7 day tapering off dose twice, but for the arthritis. How do I make sure this dose is ok for my asthma as well as my arthritis. It really helped the arthritis. I paid little attention to my asthma at the time though. Does anyone else deal with a situation like this? What was done?
