5mg once a day for 5 days so far isn't helping. Is taking four 5mg once a day the same dosage as taking one 20mg of prednisone? Or two 5mg the same as one 10mg pill.

Prednisone is a steroid class medication and it is not safe to adjust the dosage on your own. If you take too high of a dosage, then suddenly lower it, or stop taking it, it can cause serious health problems.

Additionally, this medication carries the risk of causing potentially dangerous side effects.

If the prescribed dosage hasn't worked, then you need to see your doctor to discuss what your next options are for treatment.

Are there any other questions or comments?
