Well the rheumy gave me a script of Prednisone the other day and I have been holding off on taking it.
I broke down this morning and took one. I did not want to have to but nothing else is helping me. I have had a day or two that were fairly pain free but that is it. I wake up all hours of the night in pain or just with insomnia.
I am at the end of my rope with this guys!
I haven't slept well for a couple months now and I am so exhausted and it is making me an emotional wreck!
Anyway... I took 1 5 mg tab this morning and was thinking I would try to take one every other day or so.
Any feedback would be great! I am afraid of side effects and long term effects on my body.
I don't wanna gain weight or have the dreaded moon face. I know it sounds vain but... this disease is taking everything from me and I am so tired of it!
Anyone with any experience with this drug please post your thoughts if you have a minute to spare.
Has it helped... what was your dosage... side effects... when did you feel better... can it bring you out of a flare and then go off of it and be ok for a while...
I just want to hear from the horses mouth so to speak. You can read all you want about a drug but it feels better when it comes from someone that has been there.
