Hi John, when I had to go up to 20mg of prednisone, I was told by my Rheumy to stay indoors as prednisone lowers the immune system. Now I’m on 10 for a month & not sure what to do! Anyone have any idea?
Hi. I’ve been on 20mg Prednisone for almost a week…have had severe pain in hands/wrists and had to go up from 2mgs. Rheumy advised me to stay in, no going out because of COVID-19. Have had PMR since Oct ‘18 and been up and down w/Pred. Hope this is of some help.
