Prednisone-corticosteroid used to treat inflammatory diseases and some cancers. The great thing about prednisone is that it’s a really effective immunosuppressant - it’s the go-to drug for treating autoimmune disorders (myasthenia gravis, ms, lupus, Crohn’s and colitis, rheumatic disorders & transplant rejection). The bad thing about prednisone is that it has awful side effects. increased glucose levels, Prednisone=Puffy, depression, high risk of infection. Must be weaned off medication.
There are A LOT more bad side effects than these! Nobody likes prednisone because it causes moon face, weight gain, acne, and anxiety as just a FEW of the symptoms. I agree that the side effects they listed are bad, but severe anxiety that causes you not to be able to function properly is horrible too.
