could that mean that the prednisone is in effect used by body in a different way
than if it would have been given for other reasons -- and thus that its s/e would be less ?
I think that statement is correct. I am sure my side effects (fatigue, hot flashes etc) are the result of lupron and zytiga.
4. I read that need to stop zytiga from s/e is esp re liver values - or that can require
dose adjustments if dr would allow it ?
Yes, see my signature. I stopped zytiga for about
7 weeks and am now on a "reduced" dose. It works for me so I am happy.
