side effects have developed slowly, then very rapidly over the last 6 months.
I had had major prednisone course 9 months ago as well
From this study (4 years ago):
After my mom stopped swallowing food and was becomming more and more "out of it," i obtained an Exelon Patch prescription for her. After taking the drup for about 3 weeks, she seemed to become even less alert; began to drool and was sleepy more often.
