Hi there,
Both these drugs hydromorphine and prednisolone can produce long term effects. Morphine can cause physical dependence, decreased libido, constipation and addiction. Long term use of Prednisolone can weaken your immune system making you prone for recurrent infections. It can cause osteoporosis, stomach ulcer, cataracts, weight gain; hirsutism etc.A drug is prescribed if the potential benefits outweigh the risks. Discuss your concerns with your attending doctor. I sincerely hope it helps.
Best wishes and regards!

that's the problem doctors said I have to take both forever , they said there is no alternative in your condition, that's why I am worried because I know their after effects, but what I can do with severe asthma which don't let me do anything  even a simple work exert me and worse my worsen asthma and severe spinal pain  (3 vertibras are fractured due to heavy doses of cortisones)   which don't let me sleep , walk even I cant sit , and I have 4 kids , I have disscuss with my doctors but there is no solution for me...........helpless and hopeless
