If this is prescribed by specialist it is ok,do not take such type of medicine of your own.
remaining dose still devide into 4 days so that dose is still be divided in tapering.
during this time you might have gain some weight.Short term course has no long term side effects.but keep this in mind that never go without doctor's prescription..
