"It’s the drug we love to hate." I live on Cortef to replace the coritisol my body doesn't make.. But I also had high dose prednisone for recurrent pneumonia's.. That caused me to have bilateral AVN-Avascular Necrosis in both hips :( Two core decompression's later 3 yrs, the AVN has recurred in my R hip..
