    Prednisone: Good Guy - Bad Guy
    Prednisone is a synthetic hormone similar to hydrocortisone, a natural hormone produced by the adrenal glands. Prednisone belongs to a large group of similar drugs known as corticosteroids, which are prescribed for literally hundreds of conditions.

    With organ transplants, prednisone stops the body's normal inflammatory reaction to foreign tissue and infection. It is usually given in tablet form but can be given intravenously when necessary, such as when someone is too sick to swallow a pill. The drug usually is used in combination with other agents to suppress the immune response. It acts by decreasing swelling and inflammation of tissues.

    The downside with prednisone is its many side effects. The higher the dose or the more times you have been treated for rejection, the more side effects. As the dose is gradually reduces, side effects diminish. In most cases, prednisone can be reduced to a maintenance level by the end of about one year after transplantation. Also, use of combinations of drugs has allowed physicians to prescribe lower doses of prednisone than in the past.

    Regardless of complications, never stop taking prednisone unless you are instructed to do so by your transplant team. Many problems can occur if prednisone is stopped suddenly. (See "Why Can't Prednisone Be Discontinued Suddenly?" for more information.)

    Side Effects of Prednisone
    The most commonly encountered side effects are:

    Sodium retention
    Increased appetite
    Increased fat deposits
    Increased acid in your stomach
    Increased sweating, especially at night
    Increased hair growth
    Acne on the face, back, and chest
    Bone and muscle problems
    Growth problems in children
    Eye problems
    Increased sugar in the blood
    Increased sensitivity to the sun
    Delayed wound healing
    Decreased ability to fight infection
    Thrush (Candida) growth in the mouth

    Prednisone is a corticosteroid. In contrast to anabolic steroids (used by “bodybuilders”), corticosteroids are used in inflammatory conditions for their anti–inflammatory effects. They have a rapid onset of action, and profoundly affect many parts of the immune system as well as most other body systems. Corticosteroids are a cornerstone of treating most types of vasculitis, and are often used in combination with other immunosuppressive medications

    I must ask this. Where in the world do you get your information at. 2 out of every 3 of your questions are goofy. Why don't you take about 6 weeks off this site, do some reseach on bodybuilding, steroid use and then come back with more intelligent questions. Brother your questions have me thinking your user name should be changed to KID-DACA

    My Dad has sarcoidosis and has to take the stuff for good, He has gained 20 lbs just because he said you eat all the time he said he is suprised he hasn't chewed his steering wheel off! But his dr said he is doing good weight gain is a side effect and most people gain at least 60lbs! And its not the kind of weight you want. Now if you lift hard and need something to bring your appetite up so you can get you calories in to gain the mass then yes you may benifit from it but I warn you get the munchies BAD

    i had to take that crap during my bone marrow transplant... it's an immunosuppressant (used in this case to fight graft-vs-host disease) not an anabolic androgenic steroid. i say, "ask all the questions you want. just don't act on it for a very long time!"

    are you on crack, dude? corticosteroids actually cause damage to skelatal muscle. please don't advice on the subject if you don't know what you are talking about.

    LYAO??? boy, you are one ignorant son of a bitch. i never said corticosteroids do not work for MD. i said they do nothing do grow muscle. i believe you said, "he is getting big." use google a little bit longer and you will realize that not all steroids do the same thing.

    i am done with your dumb ass.

    Prednisone is not an anabolic/androgenic steroid. It will not do anything for muscle gains.
