Has anyone else found that Prednisolone actually seems to exacerbate their symptoms?
I felt an exacerbation of my copd coming on - increased breathlessness, pain on breathing, so having been in hospital with an infection recently, I thought it best to use my rescue pack at the first sign.
Three days of 30mg have left me even more breathless than I was already. I was literally gasping for breath yesterday and the trembling has made it really difficult to do even basic tasks. Had to use my nebuliser more often than usual.
From reading other people's posts, it seems that everyone finds them helpful, even with the side effects.
I am wondering if anyone finds that the side effects outweigh any benefits or if anyone knows of an alternative medicine.
I just think that we are all so different and respond differently to medications.
