Hello again...my Mom has been on prednisone for about three and half weeks now. It has been a 'tapering down' schedule for overall total of mg per day. Since she started (1) pill a day about five days ago she has started more coughing than normal..at least what she was doing prior to her starting the steriod regimen. Is this normal ..might she have to stay on steriods awhile longer or God forbid is this a possible/likely recurrence. Her pulsox readings are actually better now... I am sweating bullets now. If you will please let me know and thank you.
