    All of those things are side effects of Prednisone unfortunately. The longer you are on it, the worst you get with the side effects.

    I have just been told to reduce my prednisone RX from 2.5 to nothing. Isn't this dangerous. M.

    Depends on how long you have been on it and was 2.5 the most you have taken? I am not a doctor but I think 2.5 to nothing is okay.
