  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Two days after starting on 70 mg dose of prednisone I experienced fibrillation which sent me to overnight in hospital with intervenous drugs to correct. Paddle shock was threated in the event the drugs did not work. Thank God they did and a normal pulse was maintained beginning about 2 am. I am 75 years of age and had not been hospitalized since my tonsillectomy at age 5.
