Predisone Experiences?

I just had an appointment with a new Rheumatologist because my awsome doctor left town. This new doc want to change my azathioprine to something else a mi....something (cant remember the name) and shes putting me on prendisone for a month to try to get a hold of this faster.

Listen, I am just recovering from a Lupus Flare, and as much as I did not want to take the Prednisone, those tiny little pills are the reason why I am feeling so much better. I've been working so hard trying to keep & get the weight down/off, but I felt so bad.... I was desperate. Out of my desperation, I took those pills... within days, I was feeling much better. Please take the medicine.

It could..... So many things can be the cause of that.
For decades, peeps wanna know why their
hair thins/falls out. lol.
Good old blue Head & Shoulders is
great for hair loss, at least it's been
kind to my hair when it's having a scab
flair/attack. My skin specialist Dr prescribed a shampoo that kicks
good, but it's really serious, it doesn't get along w/processed hair.
but do not freight, there are beautiful wigs/hair pieces/spray we
can go to when we get there, which hopefully won't be for a long time.
Oh, & Sally's carries two brands of hair thinner shampoo/conditioner
(even from chemo ), they get good testimonies.

Pros:1. It stop my pain 2. It made my swellings go down and away.

Con: 1 It give you the moon(fat) face. 2. Make me pee alot. 3. Made me eat alot. 4. Gain weight. 5. Bad for your kidneys.

Prednisone is a necessary evil. Only occasional use is ok. It is long term use that is bad for us. Praying for you!! Sleep well tonight!
