I just found out that because of the large dose's of steroids(predisone) I have been on for over 6 months anywhere from 120 to 60 mg a day I have developed cushing's disease's which I had never heard of. Ny own adrienal glands have shut down & if I stopped the steroids I would die within days. My Dr. has me down to 40 mg & I will have to stay here for about 3 weeks & decrease by 5 mg every 2 weeks until I get to a 10 mg a day dose which will hopefully help keep my RPC under control with the chemo. Being that so many of us also take predisone for RA has anyone had this issue? I know predisone can be a wonder drug but the more I learn about it there are a lot of dangers.
