Taking Predisone for Psorisis after a badTaking Predisone after a very bad reaction to Humira
I was on it for almost 3 weeks when I started to have some trouble swallowing and looked up on the computer which told me the problem was the Predisone..
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 7 months ago

It could be a fungal esophagitis though

prednisone is known to cause this

have you had this tested?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
