I think I am going to be the only one to say this... I love Prednisone! I hate the side effects at a high dose (80mgs) but, every time I have been on a high dose, my blood work has gotten significantly better over the course of a month. It keeps my voice in great shape, because it opens up everything, and at a low dose, the side effects are pretty much nil. I plan to stay on low dose pred as long as I can!
I also take plaquenil, and cell cept... But I stopped taking the pred for a little while and everything went helter skelter! Not as bad as it would have if I had stopped the other drugs, but I was dumping 3 grams of protein after a only month of being off pred. Before that, I was dumping NO protein.
