    But, Not a Cure

    What do you mean? Also have a problem with prednisone. Seems to dramatically worsen depression.

    Prednisone is a difficult drug with many side effects. I only take it when my breathing severely compromised, and for the shortest amount of time possible (with notable exception). None the less, I have trouble sleeping, get headaches, become nauseous, have agitation , mood swings, become sad, angry, weepy, hungry. It's pure hell, but sometimes it has to happen (and sometimes it doesn't, but happens anyway).
    Vaping helps me sleep, calms my agitation, helps with the nausea, when I'm on prednisone. It doesn't help with the hunger, but it doesn't make it worse. It doesn't stop thinning skin, bones thinning, or hair falling out, at least in my case, but for the mood swings, headache, sleep and nausea, or dealing with hair falling out, etc. vaping is a wonder .

    Both smoking and vaping slow cold and flu recovery, but I've found vaping slows recovery far less than smoking.

    that's my conclusion regarding vaping. a bit of a slow down,
    BUT
    it can make me a little fresher for a while, until i get heavier again.
