I had three injections all of which worked for a few days to two weeks then stopped. The excruciating pain returned and only Vicoden 5 mg 3-4 times a day controlled the pain. Vicoden at that dose is the lowest dose prescribed. it worked perfectly for several years and doctors refused to prescribed opioids for fear of losing their license. My sister recently died of throat cancer and she complained constantly of pain. She died with unrelieved pain. As a cancer patient she was prescribed Morphine 2 mg. every 6 hours. That is beyond ridiculous but keeps our doctor’s license safe. Our doctors are violating their Hippocratic oath – Do No Harm. They had added a caveat “except when the government is breathing down your neck. Then the patient be damned. I am glad this helped you Randy. I don’t know your clinical status but I am sure it differs from mine. Do you have severe and crippling arthritis?
I want to tell you about my dog Bailey, a Westy, and how your product has helped. Bailey has atopic dermatitis. He has been on prednisone and antibiotics for 4 or 5 years now and nothing has really controlled or eliminated his itching. October 07, he was worst off then he's ever been, I was at my wits end, and tired of the same treatment offered by the vet. I found your product online and ordered it in November 07, and have been using it since. When we started Bailey's hair was almost gone, his skin was full of welts and hot pink in color, and smelled awful. About one month later I started seeing Bailey's hair growing and his skin returning to normal. Everyday I kept seeing improvement. Today Bailey's hair, the fine underlayment and outer hair is all grown in, his skin is back to its normal color and texture and the smell is gone. This is due to the Skin-eze caps and your shampoo. He looks better than he has in 3 years, we are very pleased.
During conventional pharmacologic dose corticosteroid therapy, ACTH production is inhibited with subsequent suppression of cortisol production by the adrenal cortex. Recovery time for normal HPA activity is variable depending upon the dose and duration of treatment. During this time the patient is vulnerable to any stressful situation. Although it has been shown that there is considerably less adrenal suppression following a single morning dose of prednisolone (10 mg) as opposed to a quarter of that dose administered every six hours, there is evidence that some suppressive effect on adrenal activity may be carried over into the following day when pharmacologic doses are used. Further, it has been shown that a single dose of certain corticosteroids will produce adrenal cortical suppression for two or more days. Other corticoids, including methylprednisolone, hydrocortisone, prednisone, and prednisolone, are considered to be short acting (producing adrenal cortical suppression for 1¼ to 1½ days following a single dose) and thus are recommended for alternate day therapy.
