Good Afternoon All! I write for my mother who is 91 yrs old with afib. She recently hurt her back and was having a difficult time walking so the doctor put her on a muscle relaxer and prednisone. She has been on them for 4 days now - tritating down each day for a week. She says that since she has been taking the medication, she has NOT had any afib. She will usually have an episode every day now (after having had afib for over 25 yrs). While I know that prednisone is not a cure-all for afib, could it be that the prednisone could have relieved some inflammation she has, thus minimizing the afib she is used to? Iam wondering if she will ask the doctor who prescribed the prednisone for a maintenance dose. - I know how she thinks! Lol. Has anyone else had a good experience with a steroid and their afib?
