Prenisone. What a god send. i have been on it quite a few time in the last 10 yrs. My symptoms very, this last time it was accidents and urgency. Started me on 60mgs daily, then tappered me by 5mgs a week. Currently i am on 20mgs a day. Doc wanted me to go to 20mgs every other day. i tried that and symptoms came back. So i put myself on 20mgs daily. Going for blood work on Monday. It is not good to stay on pred for long periods of time. But, heck it is working. Main thing i was told it is hard on bone density. I had a bone density test like 2 months ago and it came back normal. Beings i fight this d/d, i have blood work every 2-3 months.
Side effects were, when i was on a higher does was, acne on my face and back. Plus it makes me shake really bad. Did not last tooooooo long. just long enough. There is a plus, it gives me lots of energy. A legal SPEED They should give it to some of the employes i work with. with lower dosage, just once inawhile i get irrated easily. I all ready told my loved ones and my coworkers that this is one of the side affects, before hand. Told them to forgive me before it happens. I do recognize the the irritablity so i try to stay away from ppl. Works for me.
