Prednisone: Greetings. Prednisone is a medication that works as an antiinflammatory. The medication also suppresses your adrenal production of hormones. The gradual reduction is needed in most cases. Check with your prescribing doctor. The dose of the prednisone and the prescribing information is very important to know. We can often times recommend a rapid taper or just stopping in some cases.
