I have graves disease myself.
if the graves is treated and you have normal TSH thyroid hormone levels, you can have prednisone therapy
prednisone can cause side effects such as increase appetite, upset stomach , poor sleep, weight gain, increased aggitation, decreased immune system in any patient who takes it.
but is very good at reducing swelling and can treat bullous pemphigoid.
is your thyroid hormone levels normal?
