Acute rheumatoid arthritis, have switched to prednisone. What should be the dosage?

i have an acute rheumatoid arthritis attack going 1 week now. i have it on my 2 feet and 2 knees. i was taking diclofenac sodium and celecoxib 200mg every 6 hours. i decided to change my meds intake into predisone 20mg. my question is how much do i take each day? I feel that I had to change my meds because it is taking much too long now and the pain every day is excruciating. thanks!
