Prenisone is amazing stuff -- watch yourself near the end of the dose =
period since it can have severe psychological effects.  You can feel =
almost invincible -- "Toll?  I don't need to pay a toll for this lousy =
road...." even if you're using one of the declining dose schedules.

[I took it for mono back in 1982.  My grandmother took it for a while =
until the side effects became a problem.]
