Methylprednisolone 4MG Dospak 21s were prescribed for double ear infection for a period of 6 days. Is my immune system lowered with this small dosage?

In brief: Unlikely

It takes a much higher dose of cortisone for a much longer duration to impact the immune system clinically although steroid has been found to cause increased breakdown of immunoglobulins.
