My sister has been on prednisone for 18 years (by accidental oversight) They are going to start weaning her off. She is 86 years of age. What should I be on the alert for side affects during the weaning process?
What side affects can we expect from being weaned off prednisone?

How in the world did it get missed for 18 years? She should pay close attention to her body and if something doesn't feel right call the dr. With weaning she should be ok, but after all this time on it I worry that her adrenal cortex won't want to work. I've never seen any one who had been on it that long.
