Prednisone vs. the killer rash Part 2 by Carla U. Patient Expert Posted Fri 15 Feb 2013 11:00am In the great battle of Prednisone vs. the killer systemic rash, the prednisone has WON! My rash has pretty much disappeared. As has my prednisone. I took the last one yesterday (it was a 6-day pack where you take 6 pills on day 1, then 5 on day 2, then 4 on day 3, etc.). These last couple days I was getting headaches from prednisone withdraw ... Read on »

So here's another. Did you ever notice that when you get a 6-Day pack of prednisone (or cortisone, same idea), you start with 6 pills a day then 5, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1? There's a reason for that. Corticosteroids like prednisone and cortisone replace the ho ... Read on »
The Prednisone Blues by Sasha .. Patient Expert Posted Sun 28 Sep 2008 9:25pm Now I’ve been on prednisone for 1 month and I feel so “yucky” and fat. I’ve NEVER been overweight in my entire life and I can’t handle this well. I feel like a lump. It’s the perfect word to describe my sentiments now. Ironically, Prednisone helps the swelling go down dramatically. Without it I can’t seem to get out of bed - but with it ... Read on »

Prednisone: Clawing my way back to 5mg by Sara G. Patient Expert Posted Mon 13 Jan 2014 8:00am I originally had this post titled "Turkey Day Disaster, a.k.a the Lupus Party Fowl". But, instead, I decided to focus on the task at hand, which is to taper off the prednisone I had to increase due to said disaster. The goal: to return to my former lupus glory of taking 5 mg of prednisone one day, 0 mg the next. Oh, how far off those maintenance ... Read on »
Thankful Things Thursday: Prednisone, You Complete Me & Make Me Hyper by Ali On The Run Posted Thu 29 Mar 2012 9:26am The good: There’s a lot of good. Namely that I didn’t night sweat to death last night. I still engaged in a bit of overnight perspiration, but not nearly as drastically as the past few nights. These little changes are making a huge improvement in my hourly moods. The bad: I still slept like total crap. I think I got 5 hours of sleep, which ... Read on »
