Comment:
Had Flu, Sinus trouble along with chronic bronchitis. Warning: its a wild ride became shaky, nerves, upset but didn't know why, confused, Use a calendar so you remember when and how much to take, but the side effects for a few days was worth it. Works Great!

I have Sarcoidosis and this is the first line of treatment. It does work but the weight gain isn't pretty. It makes me hyper which is why the doctor gives me valium to take the edge off. Good Doctor!

Comment:
i am 16 years old and have such a sever case of arthritis everywhere in my entire body that it gets to the point that i can not move. I took 30 mg of prednisone and within the first 2 days i felt so much better! My only side effect was nausia which can be prevented by taking tums, prilosec or eating a peppermint. I also got headaches sometimes. other than that it has been my life saver! =]
