The pharmacist refuses to fill the new prednisone prescription and questioned me on why I needed such an incredibly high dose, one a cancer patient might get. They said it could wreck my thyroid and/or kill me at 500 mg in one dose (taking 10 pills at once ?). The pharmacist is sure he heard the office person right and when I called that's what the office manager read back to me.
Does a single oral dose of 500 mg of prednisone (10 50-mg pills) once a month sound like a normal protocol?

The pharmacist refused to give me the prescription and when he told me why it was very upsetting that there could be such an error? or lack of knowledge? on the part of either party?
