... off I crash, I hate taking them but that's all they ever put me on. I've had 4 neck surgeries and they won't heal , they keep collapsing
Prednisone is the best drug to help control your inflammation. If you try to get off it it depends on what the dosage is now. People can stay on a low dose for many years. I still have inflammation but Decided to wean my way off (doctors assistance.) and have instead been seeing a Naturalpath who has given me naltrexone and it seems to be helping. Definitely get another opinion if your not happy with your current situation.
Hi, Prednisolone, as a steroid, will affect your immune system. It will heighten your body's response to fight infection whilst taking them. But (if you have been taking them for a long time) when you stop treatment your immune system can't work as hard as it usually does which is why you will have the feeling of crashing. Sorry to hear all that you are going through. Have you asked for an alternative medication?
