PREDNISOLONE

Hello

I have slow progressive MS and have been prescribed 10 mgs prednisolone a day for nasal polyps.

I have noticed an improvement in my walking and energy, I know steroids are not recommended for long term use, but what about long tern use at low dose.

Is anyone taking low dose steroids over a long period of time ?

I did a forum search but found nothing recent.

Thanks for the reply.

ENT have told me the latest effective treatment for nasal polyps is a combination of oral steroids and drops.

Surgery is not a cure as in most cases they return.

I know about the dangers of steroids but at low dosage are they as dangerous long term.

I will seek professional advice.
