This is a repeat post i posted in another area of the site (Fibromyalgia Action UK) ...might be more useful here
Hi, New on here
I found the site searching for prednisone side effects and alternatives... I have had Aggressive Nasal Polyps for 15 years along with late onset asthma and aspirin allergy. I Have had 4 polypectomy operations and a front sinus obliteration. Short term relief and then the b***ds come back with vengeance. My life should be so good but it is crap. I am 65 and have been diagnosed with osteoporosis in my upper left femur. I have used betnesole nose drops for years and had numerous antibiotic and prednisone courses to keep the polyps at bay.
This has been reasonable successful but i have weeks and weeks with blocked nose and the need to blow hard to release the damm stuff. I am now suffering Chest congestion which stems from inflammation in the bronchial tubes, until i get up the long stringy mucus i struggle to breath and cough constantly (much to the annoyance of my partner)
prednisone temporarily opens up my airways and i get a little relief for a few week,,,and then it starts again.... My Doctor has now stopped me taking prednisone because of the osteoporosis
Any ideas that i might be able to try
