I'm on pred at the moment, and have had a cold for the past week. I've never had colds for this long before, usually I'd get them for a few days and then they'd go away again, so I'm guessing it's the pred. Wish I could just hurry up & get better though.
Me too! It's just lingering on and on. As if we havn't got enough to worry about
