I have been placed on long term steroid therapy. I take 4 mg daily of methylprednisolone.
I have tried to wean off and was unable due to secondary adrenal fatigue. I have been on this medication 3 years. I get routine blood work every 6 months and thus far my calcium is good. I take calcium supplements as I know long term use can cause osteoporosis.
I am looking for the positive stories of long term steroid users. How has it helped you and do the pros outweigh the cons?
I keep praying one day I will be able to wean off. However the flare ups and adrenal issues are so horrific. Any info/ story sharing will help. I am 38 years of age. Thank you all kindly in advance.
