Oh I honestly couldnt tell you an exact date but an educated guess its def over a year. I been on and off prednisone for nearly 3 years and just had a bone density scan done early this year and everything looked good. It may vary with age too, as i am young and still fairly resilent where someone older...I take the calcuim too here and there. I think bone loss is a long term effect.
