GH — I can’t take large doses of cortisone in any form because I have osteoporosis and pred would further weaken my bones. So I will never be trying that. I’ve already had serious fractures, and even the insurance company agrees that I can’t take it. In any case, my neurologist and the other doctors who share a practice with him say they they never use large-dose cortisone because it’s too dangerous.
