Hi,

Thanks for your message. I have started with a dose prescribed by my Doctor here. 30 mg once a day for 15 days. Today was the sixth dose. Also, 2 of my Autoimmune tests have come positive. They are:

ANA Abs - Positive.
ds DNA Abs - Positive.

I dont know that do they mean but anyone who knows about it may throw some light on it.

My mouth ulcers have gone. Just like magic. Just after the fourth dose, all the mouth ulcers have disappeared. Though I feel a little stiff in my muscles, for that I am doing some stretching exercises which are helping me a lot. Also, on the second dose, I could sleep very less the following night but since then that symptom has also subsided.

I have an appointment with my Doctor next wed (June 15). Will keep posted about the progress.

Hope it helps someone out here.

Hi I have been on Prednisone now for 8 weeks as I ended up in hospital with severe tonsilitus and mouth/throat ulcers. I have recent;y had a colonosocopy and are awaiting the biopsy results. I have been weaning off the steriods from 40mg a day and was fine until I hit 5mg a day (1 tablet) which I started mon last week. By friday of last week all of my mouth ulcers were back and the pain has been un-bearable all over the weekend, I am going to see the doctor later today as I can hardly eat or speak now. I found I had a few side effects whilst I was taking the higher amounts of tablets, they just made me think all sorts of silly things and I felt abit depressed. I also have a lovely round face from the steriods. Since reducing the dose the side effects have become less and less. Hope this is of some help to you.

Hi Mac,

I read your message and want to ask u something. I am having a chronic problem of mouth ulcers for a very long time now. Earlier it used to be 1 or 2 in some months then the frequency increased and now it is like I am having 20-25 ulcers in my mouth. And today I am feeling as if something is stuck in my throat. Also, once the sore cures, it leaves behind some sort of scar and the skin inside has become very irregular.

One of my doctor friend told me to take Prednisone as tapering dose...

Week 1 - Prednisone 40 mg
Week 2 - Prednisone 20 mg
Week 3 - Prednisone 10 mg
Week 4 - Prednisone 5 mg

But after reading about Prednisone on the internet, I became very scared... seeing that it has a lot of side effects...

Can you please tell me whether it helps and what are the dose that you are taking or took? Also, do you feel any side effects of taking prednisone?

Awaiting your reply anxiously....

To your good health.

I suffered from mouth and throat ulcers for years and I now have the solutions. I have no idea why those of you who have been to your GP have not been offered prednisone. Go back and ask for it.

Ulcers are caused by injury or by your body turning on itself, usually for stress or tiredness reasons. Everything in the Chemist (Bonjela etc) will only work on those caused by injury. If your body is turning on itself, you fix all the triggers and the ulcer persists - you need to consider a short course of prednisone tablets, because the problem is your inflammatory mechanism over reacting, for whatever reason. Pred works like a dream every time for everyone I know. You need a prescription for these.

You can also watch your diet - tomatoes, citrus fruits, wheat, cow dairy, red meat, refined sugar, caffeine and alcohol will all make your problem worse. Google "Anti Inflammatory diet" for suggestions of what to avoid and why.

Lastly, you might try a low dose nicotine patch instead of prednisone. Nicotine is an excellent anti-inflammatory and I use the patches regularly - very effective. and very easy.

Persistent mouth ulcers can be a sign of serious disease such as Crohn's, Lupus or Behcets. Persistent mouth ulcers are not too trivial to bother your GP with. If they are bad (and you all know what *bad* feels like) then make that appointment and get some real relief.

Good luck and good health.
