I have been on predisone off & on for years. For the last year I have only had a few days off & my dosage goes anywhere from 10 to 60 mg a day the average is usally 20mg. Went to the rhuemy today & he is putting my on a monthly 15 minute infusion because of the severe bone loss this much predisone causes. I can't for the life of me remember the name of the drug. Has anyone else ever heard of this. I guess I was clueless about the bone loss I know predisone does a lot of nasty things, but this suprised me. He also mentioned predisone can bring on diebetes. How can such a drug that works such wonders cause so many other problems????
