Does anyone have experience with a low dose of prednisone (5mg or 10mg) for maintenance? I was diagnosed 3 months ago and my pulmonologist prescribed two short bursts of predisone. For the first time in a year I was able to breath. I'm off of it now, but I'm scared I'm going to have breathing issues again. My pulmo tells me he has some patients that take a low maintenance dose, but he would prefer that I not take it. Any thoughts? Suggestions?
