I have been on a daily dose of 5mg prednisone for about 9 months now because nothing seems to work except the prednisone. I just had a colonoscopy and all polyps were benign and no sign of active crohns. So my doctor told me to see him in 4 weeks and im sure he will want to wean me off then.
The real scary thing was that tonight I started to walk over to the neighbors house , who I might talk to only a few times a year and for the life of me I could not remember their names as I approached them and then all of a sudden it came to me. Can prednisone do this and will the memory get better as I get off of it? I am 55 and on blood pressure pills, prilosce, pantaza and prednisone.
Thanks for any input
