Liar! I knew from the caring and learned folks here to not take prednisone bc theres a possibility i have lyme disease. My dr had rx'ed the prednisone but i didnt take it. She was going to rx doxycycline but protocol said not to wo an active tick bite. I wanted that doxy cos i feel like doo and i figured it wouldnt hurt. Didnt know how to tell her that. So instead i told her that the prednisone made me sick (thats the lie part) and could i please try the doxy. I got my rx for the doxy! I hate the deception but you can only push too far. At this point im afraid of that prednisone. She did want me to take 1 pill a day instead of the 2 she originally wanted. Ive been warned...wont do it. I just hope the doxy returns me to the land of the living. Fingers crossed!
