  • Prednisone & Incidence of TM

    Alright, my curiousity is intrigued. I was floored when Kristi told me she was taking 'Prednisone' before her incidence of Transverse Myelitis too.

    Are there any others? I find that drug makes people feel sickly ... and it seems they give it to kids like candy for allergies!

      I'm not given it for TM, but it does improve my neuro symptoms when I take it.

      It also "improves" my appetite. Ugh

        lynifer, most people who receive prednisone are getting it because they have some kind of inflammtory and autoimmune disease. As you already know, the drug should not be given for long-term. it is useful for reducing inflammatory responses and some of the side effects of inflammation. However, inflammation is essential for tissue repair and regeneration. Thus, given methylprednisolone for longer than 24 hours is something tha we investigated carefully. We found longer-term MP adminsitration was better only in those patients who swere treated more than 3 hours after injury (but before 8 hours). The side-effects of long-term prednisone use are well well documented (Source).

        Wise.

          Prednisone is an evil drug that cures/helps many things.

          I too think it makes me feel worse when on it. The side effects it has are horrendous.

          What is considered long term for prednisone? I know I took it from 2001-2003 with my dose going up and down depending on how the Lupus was at the time.
