If so what is the dosage and do you have any side effects from it?
Gives me very thin skin to wear I cut and bruise very easy. But other then that it doesn’t bother me.
Anything less than 10mgs is usually considered a "low dose" of steroids taken daily or occasionally, every other day. Most people I know on low dose are taking 5 mgs or even 2mgs daily or every other day and have minimal side effects. Even then, most of us try to avoid them if at all possible.
I take 5.mg daily, have no problems with sleeping, but If I take a higher dose for some reason, I can't sleep, I hate taking that. but on 5 mg I have no problem gaining weight, but I am not a big eater. And Now that my Husband passed from covid nov 2020, I don't usually cook a lot. I don't have a lot of energy and I take naps daily, Oh I am 83 in may. I do have a couple of hobbys that keep me going and a pup I need to take care of
I take 5mg. -- not sure if it helps me much. Dr. doesn't want me to take any higher in case I would need more if I got sick. I was also told it causes weight gain & I think that is true.
I'm on a maintenance dose of 10mg Prednisone daily. I really don't have any side effects anymore except for gaining weight. It can be difficult to keep your weight down. I'm also on oxygen 24/7 at 5 - 6 liters per minute, don't know if that will make any difference for you.
