HI, you should not take steroids for long time, it has many sideeffects. My friend's father was taking steroids for long time, now he has highBP, diabtes. His bones are very weak. Avoid this tablet and take some other tablets. This is really a sick thing to take. It also caused him severe blood vomiting
