i have just had my 2nd injection of depa medrol 120mg. the 1st one lasted 10 weeks and the 2nd one just one week. My GP wants me to take pred tablets 25mg per day and then slowly tritate it down till I get to 5mg and see whether I can be sustained on that. Will all the terrible side effects of prednisone I am very scared of doing this, as I am type 1 diabetic, have high blood pressure and coronary artery disease & the start of cataracts. Apparently if you take injections, it doesnt go through you in the same way as tablets and thus less side affects. I worry about my eyes, blood sugar & heart.
Any thoughts on this please?
