I regret that I'm not allowed to correspond with customers outside of this venue.
I normally initiate prednisone for patients such as Max at an antiinflammatory dose of 0.25 mg/lb twice daily. 5 mg twice daily would be appropriate for him. What symptoms are you currently seeing? Does Max suffer from any pre-existing conditions that might preclude the use of a corticosteroid such as prednisone?
