... never need to take it again. Question? I have a slight metallic taste in my mouth and terrible leg cramps. How long until this dissipates? Will the 10lbs I gained drop off naturally or will I have to diet? Thank you in advance for your reply
Hi. You came down way too fast. I am sure it was tough. So sorry you had to do it like this.
The metallic taste. Is it like blood or something new? You may well have thrush. If you have white patches on tongue, roof of mouth or back of throat, cheeks, anywhere with the mouth see the doctor for medication.
You need extra calcium on prednisone. I suggest you take three tums per day, or caltrate with a dairy product to regain your calcium levels. Again, call the doctor for this.
You didn't say what you are being treated for. Any other medications you may be taking may also be part of this including herbs, supplements and grapefruit juice.
Let me know how you are doing. Karen
