I have had Polymyalgia for about a year and learnt a lot about this auto immune disease from the healthunlock site, however, this is my first post on the Sjogerns site following a regular visit to the dentist, who was alarmed at how my mouth had deteriorated, 2 fillings and a build up of plaque, very unusual for me! I have a dry mouth at times, a hoarseness in my voice, mild eye irritation all symptoms of Sjogerns. Have since been tested and all came back negative. My question is, can taking 14mg of Pred. a day cause these side effects as they do not seem to be listed as side effects for this medication?
