Asthma and prednisone : Asthma


Hi all,

About 2 weeks ago my doctor believed I was experiencing pleurisy. I have asthma and my albuterol wasn’t helping. So she put me on a dose of 20mg prednisone for 5 days.

It definitely helped, but I was wondering if anyone knows if that was long enough to suppress my immune system, and if so, how long after your last dose is your immune system weakened?

I have roommates, one of whom traveled out of state and was outdoors at bars, goes to the grocery store every night, etc. This roommate is home now and I’m feeling super nervous and paranoid about COVID-19.
