I took prednizone last yr( for what I thot was) Mixed connective tissue,
arthritis and fibro. My hair became very,very thin and
I had bruises all over my body. When I stopped the pred.
in about three months these side effects went away.
As it turned out it was not a flare up of the three above issues
but that I had contacted toxo plasmosis in my eye.
I would never go on prednizone again. For the toxo my eye
dr would not put me on methotrexate as he said it would
practically destroy my bones. I have read that you do need to
take folic acid w/it tho.
