My pain management doctor started my on prednisone 5mg today instead of increasing my morphine dosage again, to see if it helps control the pain I have. She wants me to try it for a month to see if it helps at all. My question is, if it doesn’t help, can I just stop taking the 5mg per day or do I have to taper off? If so, how do you taper 5mg of prednisone? She didn’t seem to know the answer to that question either, so I would very much appreciate your response. Thank you!
You may stop prednisone at 5 mg daily without any difficulty.
