I have been reading how so many off you are on predisolone long term. My doctor and the specialist won't let me have them on a long term basis. I have fibromyalgia Ulcerated colitis and inflammation and the predisolone really help me a lot. They keep my pain down tremendously and I can have a good life on them. When I was only on 5mg it helped a lot. If I take only 5mg a day will that do any harm to my bones? I am waiting on a appointment to go into hospital and have some injections that my rheumatologist specialist is making for me once a year to help strengthen my bones as I am only on the borderline of osteoporosis. He gave me tablets that I had a bad side-effect from them. I hope someone on here can tell me if 5MG predisolone will do any harm to me? I started in November on 40mg and now down to 5mg. In 2015 I was on 5mg for a year and I had the best year and pain was nearly all gone.
I wish you all well.
