Our expert says:
In general, short courses of prednisone do not require tapering of the dose (unless your doctor specifically instruct you to do so).
Prednisone is rapidly absorbed and peak effects can typically be observed after 1—2 hours. Most effects should disappear 8-16 hours after last dose, whilst the most of the drug should be eliminated from the body after 36 - 72 hours.
