I have chronic gout for last five years. Tried everything nothing worked to help me with pain, but prednisone. I have it at 5mg a day and no side effects. I just started taking astragalus as well ,I understand that it will mitigate the immune suppressant quality of the prednisone but will it stop the anti inflamatory quality of the pred? That is what I depend on
Hello, I have had kidney stones on and off for the past 6 years. When I was first put on potassium citrate I had no side effects. I tried to go off the potassium citrate and change the way I eat instead to try and control the stones. All seemed well for about a year. Then they came back. This time around and of course being older now 45 I am experiencing weight gain with the potassium citrate. I realize some of this is age related. I would like to get an idea of how many others have experienced this and average gain? The 1st Rx I had a year ago I put on 4lbs almost instantaneously it seemed. My dosage was just increased and again very rapidly another 6lbs. I was told my body would adjust after time. Has anyone else had this experience? Thank you for your thoughts :)
