@ken82. Prednisone is a difficult drug because it is necessary for some people (me), but it has so many negative effects too. I now have osteoporosis and the endocrinologist I went felt it was primarily due to prednisone. I hope at some point I will be able to stop taking it, but they say “not yet”.

I have to say this. I had a friend who had COPD/emphesema very bad and was on prednisone for a long time. So long that she developed osteoporosis in a very serious way such that she fractured bones when she turned over. She couldn't breathe without them. Clearly she became bedridden. Steroids are scary. Another friend has RA and depends on them for any relief at all. They are a miracle drug for some I know.
