Reviews for Prednisone to treat Sarcoidosis
Review by thankful soul (taken for 1 to 2 years):
I was graduated from initial 40mg to 2.5mg. This was found to be ineffective as I was always in and out of hospital with cough and other symptoms of sarcoidosis. I was later put on 20mg and all symptoms disappeared. My doctor is considering reducing it to 10mg.

Review by horsecrab:
This is the only drug doctors recommend for sarcoidosis. The side-effects of other heavy-duty immune suppressant drugs are considered worse than the sarcoidosis symptoms. It's a dual edged sword. It does reduce inflammation and makes breathing easier but it also has permanent effects. For me it permanently reduced thyroid function, increased puffiness in face, overall weight gain, insomnia and overall muscle stiffness to the point of spasms.
