    Prednisolone for Sarcoidosis

    Because of the sarcoidosis, I first have 40mg for 3 weeks, then 30mg for 4 weeks, then 5mg down every 4 weeks and the remaining time 5mg per day. Side effects were on the first day by shaking to notice, after 3 weeks I was totally pampered, my environment was shocked, even strangers spoke to me I would not look good if everything was ok. In the 4 months I have 19Kg increased, of which were apparently 5Kg of water went down immediately after discontinuation down, the rest is persistent and can be difficult to get rid of even with diet and sports.

    I was diagnosed with sarcoidosis of the lungs in November 2013. After 3 weeks of prednisolone there was good regression of the blotches on the lungs. However, since taking (currently taking prednisolone 25 mg), I have strong chest muscle and shoulder pain. Does anybody have such an experience I would be very helpful ???!

    Side effects: Muscle aches

    Prednisolone for Sarcoidosis

    I have to undergo cortisone therapy for 7 months due to sarcoidosis. During this time, cortisone was gradually reduced from 80mg initially. The sarcoidosis has disappeared but there were quite a few side effects during this time. At first everything tasted of metal. By Wasseinlagerungen I took 18Kilo, which are now dismantled, however. Cortisone attacks the gastric mucosa resulting in heartburn, on the other hand, there were tablets that also helped. At first I always got calf cramps at night, whereas magnesium helped, besides, I could fall asleep badly and sweat a lot at night. The cortisone promotes fungal infections, in my case there was an infection in the mouth, in the genital area and in addition also hemorrhoids and flatulence. The most painful thing was the infection in my mouth, because I always had the feeling that I had to drink something. Fortunately, all of these side effects have disappeared towards the end of therapy. Towards the end of the therapy, I suddenly had a vision disorder. I got up in the morning and could not recognize the font on my phone which went without problems the previous evening. A check-up with the ophthalmologist said the eyesight is 100% there and nothing can be detected on the eye, but now you are far-sighted and need reading glasses. This is now 6 weeks ago my vision fluctuates strongly, sometimes I can see better and sometimes worse, I hope, of course, that still with the time is still. Conclusion: As good as it helps cortisone, it is a devil of all the side effects, even if most side effects are gone, I would prefer other therapies if there are any.
