I had flu like symptoms for five days with the associated problems of lack of sleep and energy. Within 24 hours of taking Prednisolone, (8 per day for 5 days), the cough had subsided, and I was able to get a decent night's sleep and my energy started to return.
Although it worked wonders when I needed it, it has been a nightmare trying to reduce/quit.
I was prescribed this medication for sweets syndrome which is a skin condition I have that flares up randomly if the steroid cream I use doesn't work after 7 days I then go on a short course of prednisolone this really helps and my skin clears within a few days I don't have any side effects from this medication it also helps with my rheumatoid arthritis
I've been on prednisone since I was 10 years old. I've got 3 types of arthritis. Prednisone can help with bringing down high blood counts but the side effects aren't that nice as make your bones bad and give you bad mood swings and makes your hair brittle so falls out easily
I don't like being on steroids but at the moment I don't think I have a choice, am feeling fantastic compared to how I was. So far no side effects.
