If you're feeling better in general, I think you should persist with the LDN.

Prednisolone 50mg/day for ten days - that's a lot for a nasal/upper airway allergy! It definitely has a good chance of working though, and soon! This dose is typical of what is used for a severe asthma exacerbation, following a visit to the emergency dept.

For nasal allergies, treatment with prednisolone would not normally exceed the 10 days you've been given. You will probably find that you can reduce to 25mg after a few days. That is up to you though, if you want to reduce oral steroid exposure.

If symptoms return after prednisolone, you should ask about getting topical nasal steroids, not more prednisolone.

Short-term prednisolone usually has very few side effects. Long-term, it has many, so it is useful to minimise use by switching to sprays etc.
