What is the consensus for tapering steroids? i.e. after putting a child on systemic steroids e.g. prednisolone 2mg/kg/day for how long, you need to taper it off rather than stopping it abruptly ?
In other words, how many days after being on systemic steroids--good dose--are you concerned about Adrenal suppression?
Thanks in advance
