Just for your information: my pulmonary specialist recently prescribed 20 mg prednisone twice a day (one in morning, one 12 hours later) for an upper respiratory infection because I have chronic bronchial asthma (BA) and prednisone is supposed to relieve BA quickly. I have never taken prednisone before and I tend to have sensitivities to numerous medicines. Needless to say, I had a very severe reaction to the prednisone. Use caution when taking prednisone, for any disorder.
