Long Term Use of Prednisone

In a seven-year study of 602 people with and without early rheumatoid disease, the results have been very positive.  Both groups were assessed in terms of death, cardiovascular disease, severe infection and fracture.  The typical dose range of those taking Prednisone was between 6 and 3 mg per day.  The results indicate that there was little difference between the two groups.  As such, low dose Prednisone over seven years is not dangerous.
