Hello,

Thanks for your question.

I would wait and give the Atopica in 5 days, to get back on the 4 days schedule.

What is the dose of prednisolone? I might not give it two days in a row if it is a high dose, but if it is 5 or 10 mg, I would do what you suggest, give it 2 days in a row and get back on schedule.
