1bassoon Posted August 14, 2012 Share Posted August 14, 2012 So. After coughing constantly all weekend, and feeling like dirt today, I went to the walk-in clinic. Pneumonia starting in my right lung, with bronchial irritation (bronchitis?) I had a breathing treatment and a shot of steroids. (1 cc, not too much) Came home and started on an antibiotic (levofloxacin) and am to start prednisone in the morning - 60 mg tomorrow, 50 mg next day, tapering off from there for 6 days. But now I'm FREAKING OUT about the side effects of prednisone. What are my options, though? My cough is SO bad. . . . . . Someone tell me I won't die??? Or give me an alternative. . . . .
