What is considered a low or high dose of prednisolone, and also what is considered 'long term' Still new at this, and I'm trying to arm myself with info.

Cheers,
Jac

Is this for a child or an adult?

"High dose" means different things to different people. I consider anything over 40 mg's to be high dose. Someone else may think higher or lower.

"Long term" is a few months.

I would say 60 mg's is high for a 10 year old. Poor kid!
