It seems that there are a few of us that have an issue with prednisone tapers that I just assumed was me-every time I drop down to the next lower dose, my peak flows tank and I have problems for a couple of days before they seem to rebound-at least until I drop to the next dose. My post hospital taper is ugly-80mg/day for 3 weeks before I even start to taper it off. The total taper-down to 5 mg every other day for a week before finally being done-take almost 8 weeks and I've noticed that ever dose change, I have these issues. My dose drops are typically only 5 mg at a time so I'm not taking big drops. Anyone else have this type of issue?
