  • Miracle drug for stubborn asthma flares! Don't let the nasty side effects scare you from short-term use when inhalers aren't enough. Steroids shrink inflammation at the root of asthma like nothing else. Lessons learned: 1. Don't wait: Call doc as soon as regular & rescue meds quit working 2. Take step-down dose as rx to reduce side effects 3. Side effects easier if you're prepared. Mine: munchies, edema, yeast infections, "speedy", moody, menstrual irregularities.

  • Doctors are reluctant to give this drug but it is very good. I had zero side effects. Felt better than I have in 10+ years. It should be given for longer courses than they are comfortable prescribing. 7 days did not produce remission. 31 days did! I wish I could have a standing prescription for this stuff so when I need it it is available!

    Taken for: Exacerbation of multiple sclerosis
  • The main thing is: the prednisolone stopped the protein leak from my kidneys (Minimal change syndrome) in about two weeks, at a 60mg a day dose. I'm forever grateful for this. However, side effects included huge fat face. Insomnia. Irregular periods - which actually turned out to be a pregnancy - as the steroids not only masked the symptoms of my pregnancy, they perhaps helped it along...

    Taken for: Nephrotic syndrome
  • Gained lots of weight, puffy face, stomach ulcers, rash and more on this med. I'm not sure if it's worth it since I have a lot of side effects but it did work for joint pain.

  • Great for nearly instant, albeit short term (24-48 hrs). Apparently I metabolize VERY quickly. Anyway, it is almost magic!

  • Does increase your appetite and make you feel restless, but can cope with that for a week or 2 to rid serious infections

  • Ultimately I needed to take Xanax to sleep while on my regimen. High level of mood swings.
