The doctor has good reliable ways to do this ("natural" is not in the picture). ...Read more

Your doctor may recommend that. The copious mucus can be really problematic, though, and getting that loose (with saline, with warm baths, or with a humidifier) and get it out may be the most helpful. ...Read more

To tide you through the difficult days/weeks ahead, try temporarily supplementing with another anti-anxiety drug (like klonopin) that has a longer half-life so that you don't then keep going into withdrawal.

Talk to whoever was prescribing the Prednisone to you - they can give best advice. ...Read more

Go to a nearby ER. ...Read more
