How high is high dose? Did they taper her off for a few days? Supposedly you don't have to taper if high dose has been taken for less than 7 days, but I don't agree with that ( I take high dose oral Pred under family doc supervision about 3 times per year). I know how I feel when coming down to lower dose.
My understanding is that your body stops making its own Pred of you bombard it with high doses and you can "crash" if stopped too abruptly.
\Its great stuff and I need the relief I get a few times per year, but the side effects can be rough.
Let us know what happens.
