For Inflammatory Conditions “I had a spinal injury and went in with literal screaming pain, I couldn’t even pass out. They have me a steroid shot and this med to take at home, which I did. (The ER made me go home even though I was still crying, but that’s a different issue) what I mean to say is I’ve had other brands and this one, I can’t even tell if they’re working. My mom has the same brand for her fibromyalgia and it didn’t work.”

For Cluster Headaches “I am 51, and have been getting cluster headaches since 17. Have tried every medication for them, but nothing seemed to work for me. I was finally prescribed Prednisone, it takes a few days to start working, but after I finished the course, I didn’t get a single headache for nearly a year. The course was 20 mg a day, for 10 to 14 days, depending on the doctor. The length of time, without a headache varies, but is usually a year or more.”

For Sarcoidosis “Feeling hyperactive like I can’t walk fast enough, having to wait on a thought to process, always wanting sweet, salt and crunchy food. Med after 7p keeps me awake at least 4 hr although I feel tired. Only been on for 1 month for new sarcoidosis Breathing much better! Chest tightness better! Energy level better !”

For Rheumatoid Arthritis “Because of the length of time on Prednisone, I now look like a moon-faced pregnant linebacker. BUT, it has been the ONLY medicine since diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis that has given me any relief close to being able to function. I’ve been warned of the serious side effects, but with medicines everything is a trade off in my opinion. Without Prednisone, I may be out of bed a total of 2 hrs per 24hr period–& that’s a GOOD day!”

For Asthma “Works to help open airways, but made me very moody.”

For Eczema “I’m rating this a ‘one’ reluctantly because it truly worked miracles. I’ve wrestled with eczema for years and it has become quite painful. An ER doctor prescribed this when I was there for an unrelated issue. Within days my open skin and rough patches were completely gone.But the side effects…I put on 15 pounds in under two weeks, with a painfully swollen gut, stomach pains and insomnia. Upon visiting my regular physician, he refused to renew the prescription, explaining that these side effects, and potentially much worse, were due to the Prednisone.”
