Prednisone is used to reduce inflammation. Did they tell you why they are using it? Do you have some other condition? Other meds you are taking?
Just not enough info to know. The cardiologist order it, yes? If so there would be a reason and I would take it. Did the stress test give results? usually a chemical stress test is done when a person is unable to do the treadmill for some reason. So there would be other conditions. Would also help if you said what the dose is. That would tell a lot.
Prednisone isnt given out lightly. Let me know some of the answers here and then it will make more sense. I would take it. Thanks.
