I was give this for a cough/cold. My symptoms are not that severe, so I was thinking of starting with 3 pills and tapering to 2 then 1. Is this dangerous? I just hate the way I feel on prednisone.

Hello, Eileen! How are you?

It would be best to take it as prescribed, starting with 6 tablets and tapering down to 1.

This is not Prednisone, it is a steroid, but a different one. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia and acne.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I only have 7 pills (missed) out of a 6 day 4mg pack of methylprednisolone. It was prescribed to me in the past for my back and was effective. Can I take these over a 2 or three day period safely until I can get an appt?

I was prescribed Methylprednisolone as a six-day pack and forgot to take twelve so I started all over from the one I missed which was day one, the one before bedtime. Is this dangerous? What should I do?
