What to expect from steroid burst

Recommended Posts



My son is 11 and weighs about 69 lbs. The steroid was Prednisone for 5 days, 20 mg, twice a day, but we only did three days.


I don't know what to think anymore. We see LLMD on Jan 2nd, so I guess I just have to be patient and gather up all my questions and document everything I see.

If I remember correctly, it seemed like a massive amount.... She was about 90 pounds at the time.


about 60 mg/day for the first week/10 days or so, then 50, then 40, then 20 then 10. Over the course of about 2 months. virtually the entire summer.


But, within about two days, including Clindamycin, she was almost entirely back to normal.....could walk again, although she still needed the walker until about the third day or so. Within a week, she could swim in the ocean again by herself, and you'd never have known how bad it was only a week before.
