Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
MSIR 30mg 3X daily, PREDNISONE 10mg 1X daily. This regimen works well, minimal pain and maximum flexibility. Not particularly pleased with drug dependency but what the hell it works.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
taking prednisone 10 mg tabs off and on over last 3 to 4 months and was helping tremendously with pain, until most recently when I began taking it again at 10 mg about 10 days ago, not as much relief of joint pain at first, now none, and my WBC is 19,000....prior to prednisone was normal.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I have been using the listed above drugs, but recently have been feeling apathy towards sex. I feel some desire and when its time I am hindered by the sensation that I have to urinate or defecate but cannot, and thus I feel the the initial erection but cannot maintain the erection.
