So Much Prednisone!

So Much Prednisone!

Is it a bad sign that i am on 3rd dose of steroids in 6 weeks? My symptoms are crazy.... one 9 day course of 60mg, 40mg, 20mg, a depo medrol shot, and now today another 9 day course of 30, 20, and 10.
I still have not been put on a regular medication and just hanging in there till next rheumy appointment. 4 weeks to go

It’s a new day Jennifer. The more I think about your high dosage of Prednisone the more concerned I become. You need to get on something else and wean off this stuff gradually. Many other options to reduce pain and swelling.

Hi Jennifer, We do what we must suffering the incredible pain. I recall prednisone working like magic when I got in trouble years back. Had to go off it with elevated sugar. I hope soon you will see a good Rheumy and get on something that will help you and stop progression. I’ve been at it 43 yrs and have done most treatments available. I’m managing pretty well now.
