For all the things I don't like about prednisone, I do have to say it has helped me. I have Scleritis of the eye and prednisone has so far been the only drug to come through for it. I am currently on other medicines which will take a bit longer to kick in.
The prednisone wipes out all the pain (eye, stomach, joint) and not even the narcotics I have taken have done that. I have more energy while I am on the pred. My stomach feels fantastic. Evenmy asthma is better.
I have been on and off (more on) this drug for almost a year now and this post was really a good one because I have started focusing on all the negative aspects of the drug, when really, it does have its positives as well.
I hope you feel better soon and that the prednisone helps you out!
