    you must finish all of the prednisone. your directions should tell you how to slowly reduce the dosage . a sinus infection causes throat pain because of the drainage into your throat.

      aren't the instructions on the pharmacy label? you should call the pharmacy for instructions if it isn't on the label. he must have given you a 10 day supply. that is pretty high dose without reducing the dosage slowly.

      Just take two a day for five days and then stop. You do not need any special reduction in that short time. You can check with the pharmacist if you wish.

      you should finish your dosage that's a short time to take the steroids it won't hurt you. you won't need to reduce the dosage because it's only for 5 days. But if you don't take it you're not going to get over your sinus infection

      Listen to Irene. People who have been taking steroids for over around 3 weeks or so do need to taper down and I think that is what some if the people were thinking. Good luck, I hope they work, they are considered a wonder drug.
