    A year ago arthritis pain has caught me and my prescriber recommended me just 2mg dose of prednisone as pain killer. Its being doing well for me. I am happy without side effects:)

      Prednisone is anti-inflammatory drug with it new classification, it can reduce inflammation up to painkiller extent and it works without risk of GI.

    I had read somewhere that prednisone is a drug that is used very commonly for the treatment related to psoriasis. I am a patient of this disease and have been using this disease for the past one month or so. Though the drug has helped me to overcome the pain and irritation that is attached with this disease, I often have to face a lot of side effects, the most common one being bouts of diarrhea and feeling of nausea. Though it subsides after a few hours, I would have been happier if these side effects were not there. Nonetheless, it is a drug that has given me lot of relief from psoriasis.

    I know some bit of information about Prednisone because my father who is a patient of psoriasis has been using this drug off and on. Though this drug works wonders on as a short term therapy I am not very sure about its impact on a long term basis. I have heard people telling me that corticosteroids like Prednisone should not be used long term. But my question is what about patients like my father who may have to live with psoriasis for his entire life. I have a question to ask. Is prednisone a safe drug for long term use? I have my own doubts about the safety of the drug or long term use.

    Though many people have a lot of good things to say about Prednisone, my experience with this drug has not been good to say the least. I am a patient of chronic osteoarthritis and considering my age (I am around 72), I find it extremely difficult to move around and often during winter I am confined to my wheel chair. My doctor prescribed me Prednisone when the pain became intolerable in both my knee joints. However, little did I know that I was in for a rude shock within a few days of taking this drug. My blood pressure and blood sugar shot up quite rapidly and I almost reached a state of hyperglycemia and it was tough time both for my doctors and my family before my sugar levels were brought down to more manageable levels.
