Beware of specific medicines

Sunday, July 26, 2009

To the Editor:

People, please be aware that the medicine Prednisone can cause death to anyone.

I recently lost my baby girl that helped me to cope with my wife's death a few years ago. She was 11-years-old and I feel like I killed her by giving her Prednisone that a doctor prescribed for her for her pain and inflammation.

After four days of taking this medicine she came in and laid down beside of me, coughed twice, fell over with blood running out of her nose and she was dead.

Yes, she was a dog, but she was my baby girl and I loved her so much.

So please, people, know what the side effects are before you give a medicine to anything or anyone, because the doctors will not tell you.
