I'm diabetic so I have to be super careful about taking steroids. They run my blood sugar into the stratosphere. I don't know why they have that effect, but they do.
The bad part about that is I feel great when I'm taking them. My hair and skin just glow when I'm on prednisone. Isn't that the way it goes?
I'm glad I can take Naproxen. It works very, very well for me, and is my pain reliever of choice for just about everything. I'm glad it's available over the counter now.
