High doses of Prednisone for 3 1/2 months

I had to take high doses of prednisone for 3 1/2 months to breathe. I never took opioids with prednisone or in the physical condition I’m in after getting hit with the effects of 9/11 4-5 years ago. For the first time in my life I had extreme memory issues, and I think the time to worry is when it hits your finances which can make you very careful and you lose every single thing you put down especially if you just moved again since my house didn’t sell, it has been more than a nightmare and I am thrilled to see my neurologist tomorrow and ask many questions including the reasons I feel like a throwaway at the World Trade Center when no one cared to look when I lost 46 pounds in one month and instead of having skin hanging from the bottom of my own that hangs from where my bi...

54 343 pill

I thought that this pill was prednisone, the pill marked 54/343? ## Hello, Carol! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Roxane Laboratories and they list it as containing 5mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, so this is a generic for Percocet.
