Took 1 7.5mg/day for a month; upped to 2/day for 2 weeks; now utilizing as needed. Went 30 hrs. Right shoulder extremely weak and painful with possible rotator damage--could barely move arm. Med enabled me to use arm more and more; now gained over 90% mobility and strength. Mild side effects, but concerned about continued useage.

Took for swelling and pain after knee surery. After 2 30 days scripts I am still just as swollen. I have gained 15 lbs in the last 2 months, due to the steriods in this drug, (or at least thats what my MD thinks).
