I don't like the sound of your doctor at all.
My doctor is an actual chronic clusterhead. I am episodic and this
is the dose he has put me on....
3 per day for two days
2 per day for four days
1 per day for four days
1/2 per day for two days
Now he has given me a repeat prescription but would only take it if
I couldn't stand it, and would have to start all over again.
I just don't get the fact that your doc is basically letting you prescribe to yourself.
Prednisone can be a nasty drug and has to be tapered down very slowly.
Please get another opinion.
Your concerned friend and clustersister
