I was on 120 mg of Prednisone and had developed diabetes. My blood sugar was at 613, and anything over 500 you can go into a diabetic coma. I was scared more than, than I had ever been in my life before. I was well for two years, no flares of any kind and then got so sick I was in the hospital twice. The first time I was in for 10 days and was on more meds than I knew what to do with, including 120 mg of Prednisone. I never want to use that terrible drug again.
I have been able to get all my side affects under control; blood sugar is normal, eye pressure went back to normal, muscle strength is back, but now I have the worse acne I have ever had in my life and have lost about 75% of my hair. I have been off of prednisone for almost two months but the side effects are still hitting me.
Talk to your doctor and stay on top of everything. Read as much as you can about the side effects, because from what I have seen, if you get one, you are more likely to have many.
