Inflammation surrounding heart after having pacemaker put in. Can't seem to get off prednisone, pain keeps coming back and gaining weight. Nopalea is natural supplement put out by TriVita.
It's unfortunate that you haven't had any response ...
If you are taking prednisone for inflammation around the heart, I would hesitate to substitute it for something like Nopalea, which does not have sufficient evidence of effectiveness.
I realize the side effects are unpleasant and it is unfortunate that you have to take prednisone long term. Please discuss with your doctor what other known, researched medicines are available to treat this condition.
