I am happy to answer your follow up question.
Steroid medications when taken for long duration. need to taper off this medication.That is you need to use less and less before you stop the medication completely.
But if you have taken this steroid medication for short duration(less then 5 days)this can be stopped immediately & this should not cause any side effects of withdrawl.
Also let your doctor know that you are going to stop this medication & accordingly another replacement drug will be prescribed to you accordingly.
