Discussions that mention prednisone

Arthritis board

I've taken Prednisone for Rheumatoid Arthritis - 10 to 20 mgs per day whenever I flare up. It works quickly for me, within a day or two, I get a big burst of energy/well being and the pain reduces. However, it's a double edged sword for me. I gained weight staying on a low dose of Prednisone for 2 months.
