I took Six 20mg tabs of prednisone for two days before I realized they were 20, not 10mg (as I d had prescribed before in a different incident.) Can I now just go down to the three that were prescribed and titrate from there, or do I need an antidote?

my husband was just prescribed Prednisone for his asthma, and he has taken this before. This time the dosage is different though. In the past the 20mg Prednisone was prescribed as follows: 3 for 2 days, 2 for 2 days and then 1 for 2 days. Today he was prescribed 20mg and instructed to take 2 for 5 days, with no taper. What is the reason for tapering off? Should he call his doctor to clarify??
