**** I've three mor days worth of prednisone .... Checked two hours ago and tested at 135bg.... Hardly eating anything so far, just enough to keep strength up...what do you mean by sliding scale? I'm confused on that part???? Thanks for the info

A sliding scale is where they have you in a high dose of prenisoline and they gradually slide the dose down till 0.

Oh, no, I'm not on scale like that.... It's just for inflammation due to bronchitis right now

How long have you been on it? And what does per day have you been given? You might be okay if it's a small does, and if it's a one off treatment.
