Hello Hazel. I have been on prednisone for 3 years. after being hospitalized for peulerisy, spelling has to be close haha, the docs put me on 40mg wich I was on up until about a year ago and have since tapered down to 4 mg. My doc wouldn't give me any details other than to tell me I can't stay on that much prednisone forever, wich it was the only thing alowing me to try and keep working, and that bad things WILL happen. I kinda blew it off untill somewhere on here I read a post from someone that desribed what their mother went through due to high dose steroid use and I decided right then I wanted off that crap. I will see if I can find that post. Hope this helps. God bless. Jim.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulations, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort wich we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:3
