Well that gives me some insight as to what may be causing her elevated liver levels, what exactly is pedipred used for? the directions said to give .3cc daily on a continual basis after her surgery in July... and the doctor knows she is still taking it and has not told me to stop... should i stop this? I don't understand why ahe is losing her hair if both adrenal glands were supposibly removed? She is getting a monthy precortinin injection? is this enough? The melatonin did not seem to work in making any new hair grow back. She was taking .5cc's twic a day. Some time once a day.
