Puffy prescient, it is! Sorry about your health problems, most of us have them, some far worse, others are lucky to get off lightly. I myself have not been so lucky either. So, I'm right there with you.
Unfortunately, Prednisone is prescribed for a dozen illnesses, and seems to do more harm than good. I don't know why they consider it a panacea. I stay away from that stuff, with a purple passion.
These are some of the known side effects of Prednisone:
unusual weight gain,
signs of infection (such as fever, persistent sore throat),
vision problems (such as blurred vision),
vomit that looks like coffee grounds.
This is a cure for what ails ya????? I love how advertisements say, "If you find yourself allergic to this drug, please alert your doctor." With all these side effects, how can you tell if you're allergic to it?
