If you were supposed to go across, then yes, you messed up. You have to slowly wean yourself off steroids. You're supposed to go from 30 mg to 20 mg to 10 mg, and so on (or whatever your dosage). If you're jumping around from dose to dose, you need to call your doctor and let him know.

I would assume it doesn't make a difference but if
Your worried call the doc.

Yes, it does, because the dosage gradually gets less and less in order to trigger the body's natural production of steroids.

If they are all the same (which they look like it) then it shouldn't really matter which blister they come out of.

All the pills are 4mg. The pills aren't a difference dose. So the first day it would be 24 mg which I took I just went down instead of across and today will be 20 and so on each day minus 4 more mg. But I will probably still call my doctor just incase

It doesn't matter as long as you took the correct amount of pills each day.

If each pill is the same dosage it sounds like it doesn't matter. I would def call the doc or pharmacy though.

Okay, as long as you took the correct dose. I can't see the pack. I'm on my phone. You have to wean yourself. That's the important part.
