I have to start this in the morning, is this a lot at once I have to do this 2x a day for a bad cough. ( I have had it for 3 weeks) Also should I take a lower mg closer to time to get off it or what. I'm scarf to take this I took it before and it felt like my heart was going to jump out of my chest and had night sweats. Any one take this much a day?

Hi Angie,

I don't know if your cough is related to Asthma in any way, but for someone who is 12 years old and up, the dose for asthma is 40 mg orally every 12 hours. That being said, I don't think it is unsafe to be taking this much, however if it has made you feel ill in the past you may want to find an alternative.

Re: angie (# 2)

I have been on this much prednisone (20 mg) twice a day before. It never made me feel jittery.

I 've been on prednisone for years, best way I've found is to take a full dose the first day then starting cutting back like 60 mg for two bays then 40 mg a couple days and so on..
