From this study (1 month ago):
I became ill after taking Prednisone for 6 days. I spent 7 days hospitalized with lipase count over 900. After numerous tests, three gastroenterologists all agreed that it was caused by the prednisone.
From this study (1 year ago):
i been in pain for 28 yrs, and the doctor put me on prednisone. then around 3 wks later i started having siezers. now i smoke pot for a long time and one of the side effects is it take 3 mo. for my system to clean out. I stop taking prednisone around 3mo. and i have not had a siezer in 3 and a half weeks.
From this study (4 years ago):
Polymyalgia rheumatica diagnosed 7 years ago ... Prednisone only benefit ... Blood pressure issue, atrial fibrillation, cholesterol issue, with extreme fatigue and almost chronic pain, which shifts from one location to another. Neither Savella or Lyrica effective. Multiple medications caused Barrett's Esophagus, which is being treated successfully, so far. What are the dangers of current medications? I am so sorry I have nothing positive to offer. I welcome any suggestions. Thank you

Please offer any suggestions or insights into the multiple drug use described. We can't find one Dr. who will effectively oversee all medical issues. Thank you ...
