Prednisone interferes with many systems in the body. One of the body systems that it causes many side effects to includes the skin and connective tissues. Some of the most common side effects include thinning skin, stretch marks, muscle loss, and muscle weakness. Many of these could be caused by a depletion of collagen.
That’s why I recommend anyone concerned about maintaining healthy skin and muscles while on prednisone to take collagen.
Here are some reliable collagen formulations I recommend. You can purchase them through my formulary, Fullscript, which is only available from licensed medical professionals like me. You can take the collagen as a powder that you can add to smoothies, soups, drinks, or other foods.
