My allergist at one point gave me a script for 30 pills of 5mg prednisone. He told me that if I was having issues, I could try doing just two days of it instead of a week, etc. Is it okay to do that? I took some about two weeks ago for allergies (two 5mg pills, then 1 the second day). I now have a bad cold and swelling in my throat (and I am living with a pet I'm allergic to (out of my control)). I'm thinking that it is probably just this kind of situation that he was talking about and why I was given such a large prescription.
