Dosage & Administration:
The initial dose may vary from 5 mg to 60 mg per day depending on the specific disease. After a favorable response is noted, the proper maintenance dosage should be determined by decreasing the initial drug dosage in small decrements at appropriate time intervals until the lowest dosage which will maintain an adequate clinical response is reached. Constant monitoring is needed in regard to drug dosage. If after long-term therapy the drug is to be stopped, it is recommended that it should be withdrawn gradually rather than abruptly. Multiple Sclerosis: In the treatment of acute exacerbations of multiple sclerosis daily doses of 200 mg of prednisolone for a week followed by 80 mg every other day for 1 month have been shown to be effective
