Do you have positive or negative experiences of taking prednisolone? We are looking for brief accounts of people’s encounters with prednisolone, especially those with "renal involvement."
We all know about the negative consequences – moon face & weight gain, mood swings – esp on high doses, diabetes, cataracts, osteoporosis. So if you have experienced these side effects to a significant degree, let us know. But of course, with it’s rapid action, prednisolone saves lives & can bring people back from the brink of death and rescue their kidneys. So let us have your experiences positive or negative - but please keep it brief! These are needed for an item in an online nephrology journal, looking at the new drug Avacopan, which is currently being trialled as a possible alternative to prednisolone. If you are interested in sharing your experiences please contact Susan .. firstname.lastname@example.org we only have a limited time scale for this so could all emails be sent in by Sunday 30th July. Thank you Susan
