I took it while I had Bronchitis - now I am so hoarse, and have been for weeks. Did Prednisone cause this?

I am so hoarse that no one can understand me. And this was right after I took this stuff.

    No, actually pred would help. Its due to the viral progression. Pred is an anti inflammatory and your vocal cords are inflammed.

    Bronchitis, bad cough and all that jazz or the virus that lead to the Bronchitis. Are more likely the culprits.

    Unlikely - steriods usually help that sort of thing.

    Pred is more likely to give you a dreadful hunger and a moon face - I hate the stuff.
