OMG – Lots of Steroids!


Wow! I am done with all my Prednisone! Sure it was only three days but it was three days of a very high dose, 1,250mg a day to be exact although I split the last day between yesterday and today so I took 13 pills yesterday and 12 pills today… 50 mg tabs, ugh, they taste so horrible! They better help! I’ve never taken such a high dose of oral steroids, I always get the IV drip of Solu-Medrol but Loma Linda does not do outpatient steroids as I think I mentioned before… So we will see how the Prednisone goes..

Medication Update – 5/14/12


Prednisone. Never been on so much Prednisone. Loma Linda does not really do out patient steroids so instead of the typical 3 day course of IV Solu Medrol that I am used to I get to swallow 25 50mg tablets of Prednisone a day for 3 days… 1,250mg. What a horrible taste. I can almost avoid them touching my tongue but with 25 pills and no fine motor skills one always slips…
