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):
My throat is filled with nasal drip , clear which makes me cough all the time. Been to the doctor 3 times and have been given allergy nose spray. Not helping. I have tried all meds for colds and allergies but to no avail no luck. Its hard enough to have RA and MS but I can't sleep due to the violent coughing...Oh and lungs are completely clear.
