I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and it really has given me a quality of life back and eased my pain considerably. I have heard so many negative things about this med. Any advise?
LINRIN1; So if I have it right that would be like 12 pills a month You have a very smart doctor the new stuff is so much harder on people if I could get by with what you're doing and you feel you have your life back don't fight it. And really leave it to your doctor or Pharmacist to worry at this dose you should be just fine. try not to listen to the negative people on Prednisone my friend focus on the positive things and at times the doctor may change it a bit up or down it is when the people that are on 60 to 120mg every day all of these side effects hit So as long as your doing well that is the main thing. And your doctor will give you warnings if there is any problems BEST of luck and very happy that you are able to get by with such a low amount. As with any medication the lower the dose the fewer side effects Best wishes. And please feel free to bookmark this site I feel it is one of the best and many very good people on here.
