Hi Pieter

This depends on the dose. Many Patients are on long term prednisone treatment and your situation is not unique, but should treatment be discontinued, care should be taken not to withdraw this medication suddenly.

Hi,
Can you tell me if there are any dangerous drug interactions between prednisone and theophylline when used together in the treatment of asthma?
