I am starting chemo tomorrow R-Chop. One of the pills the dr wants me to take is Prednisone 20mg.
BUT she has me prescribed FIVE TABLETS (total 100mg) for five days and then I am off it completely. Then when I have chemo again in 3 wks I will be prescribed do that again.
Does that seem abnormally high to you or have some of you taken high doses and is it odd to just drop off afterwared? I'm asking the dr tomorrow but would like some feedback.
