Instantly you will be booted out

Prescription medicines as well as some supplements may interfere with ketosis. Many medicines and supplements use insulin receptors to get into our cells. A notorious prescription medicine to instantly bring you out of ketosis is Prednisone. Prednisone uses up all the insulin your body is capable to produce ([it can induce type 2 diabetes] and starve the brain of glucose (some brain parts always need glucose though small amounts). The more the brain demands glucose, the more glycogen the liver pumps into the blood but as there are no free insulin receptors, blood sugar levels may reach near diabetic levels.
