- Adverse reaction to prednisone
Severe allergic reaction. Given prednisone for angioedema attributed to Lisinopril. Within 24 hours, severe red skin on face, bp +200/+100 spikes, shortness of breath, chest pain snd severe heart palpitations. Went to ER. Given another IV cocktail of sulomedrol, Bdnadryl snd Zantac, told to double my prednisone pills to 20 mg twice a day. On fifth day, znother similar reaction but worse. Went in ambulance to ER. Put on oxygen and atavan. Sent home with six day tapering dose. No appetite. Nausea. After last pill, blood pressure spikes, flushing, chills, fatigue, blood sugar crashes, especially at night. Had to eat every two hours. Severe skin pain and itching, going on still after six weeks of stopping meds. This drug has HORRIBLE side effects. None of the drs czn tell me how long this will last, or evdn if it will go away. Eating organic, taking soothing baths, detoxing, taking adrenal, vitamin and mineral suppldments, drinking water and detoxing teas. Some symptoms are a bit better but skin is driving me crazy. How czn this drug be prescribed when drs really don 't know all it does nor how to counteract the horrible side effects!?!?
- My finger tendons broke on prednisone
Twelve years ago I was put on prednisone for sudden hearing loss. The prednisone helped the hearing loss (for as long as I took the drug; hearing loss returned after I stopped the prednisone.) But I kept getting ruptured tendons in my fingers, which I had to splint to use. I couldn't figure out why in heck this was happening. My doctor(s) didn't have a clue. I suspected the ruptures might have to do with prednisone. Now I know they were caused by it. When I stopped the prednisone, the tendon-ruptures stopped, too. This should be Must Tell information for any doctor who prescribes this dangerous drug.

- Prednisone induced cushing's syndrome
Prescribed Prednisone 20mg twice daily. Took for six weeks and developed weaken muscles and swollen face. Was hospitalized and informed I had severe Cushing's Syndrome. Host of problems included glucose over 400, inflammed pancreas, triglycerides over 4,000 and vision problems. Muscles were wasted and weak so fell several times. Had to regain strength and learn to walk again with physical therapy. Left with foggy thinking, fatigue, muscle myopathy and peripheral neuropathy. Also developed osteopenia. Afterwards was placed on hydrocortisone and Lyrica for pain. Later found liver damage.
- Prednisone side effect: hiccups
I am taking prednisone for an allergic reaction to a bee sting. 20mg for 5 days, then 10mg for 5 days. Starting the second day, I have fairly consistent hiccups, which become more severe at night. I have also previously taken prednisone to tame a severe poison ivy rash and have had the same reaction.
Any remedies? All I found, that works sometimes, is a scoop of peanut butter, didn't work last night though...

From this study (2 years ago):
About 15 minutes after my son took these. Only 1 pill of each total. He lost control of his body. Could not stand or walk. Was seeing ghosts. By the next day it got alot worse he started having numerous seizures like every 10-15 minutes all day long and developed a split personality. Has very bad memory loss. Has not recovered. Has been in several hospitals and they cant find out what is wrong with him. They diagnosed him with steroid psychosis.. But the the drug test shows he no longer has any of the medicine in his system. Did the doctors mess my baby up forever. Please keep in mind he has never ever acted this way. He would never try to harm me or anyone else. This all started with the so called psychosis.

My husband had a bad reaction to prednisone...The main thing I rememver after so many years is the symptom of seeing "snakes on the wall" and an inability to sleep. Later on he was diagnosed with manic depression. People who are bipolar or manic depressive (same illness) have strong reactions to cortisone, which is what I believe prednisone is. First, let me say that there is a particular mineral which should be taken with cortison/prednisone. It may be zinc, but your pharmacist or doctor should know this. The medicine may be out of his system, but that particular mineral may have been depleted.My husband's eye doctor knew, but the internist did not. There is a possibility that the prednisone kicked in a manic state. Patty Duke (the actress) had this happen to her. She received a cortisone for a severe sore throat, I think. Anyway, she took a dangerous tail spin and bot into relly crazy behavior. Her psychiatrist doctor was able to diagnose her manic depression by that reaction. She began lithium treatments and the lighium worked very well for her, turned her life around. She has written two books, one is called "My name is Anna" or "Call me Anna". I can't remember the name of the other one. I would suggest you get that book from the library or buy, possibly from Amazon or maybe a local book store. Afterwards you might check Widipedia for the name of that second book. My husband was misdiagnosed and therefore received medicines that made him worse. We had five years of living Hell. Fortunately for Him he was HEALED the night he received Christ. We will never know if lithium might have helped him. I know all about that split personality. I pray that all will go well for you and that this crisis will soon be behind you.

He took 1 25mg z-pak with it. I forgot to include that. It is like the excorist times 10. He thinks he is a demon. He is only 12 years old. Please if anyone knows whether or not the doctors should have mixed these medicines , please tell me. Many and many of doctors cant find anything wrong with him. He has constant seizures a split personality which says he is a demon and is mad at us for tearing down the old church and building a new one. Says we shouldnt have done that cause we freed him. Has breathing problems. Any info would be greatly appreciated..
