  • Prednisone relieves anosmia
    Having had anosmia for 15 years now the only thing that ever relieves it, albeit temporarily, is prednisone. I have done 2 surgeries to remove polyps (and won't do it again, waste of time and money - the polyps returned within a year), every herb and other "guaranteed cure" (bogus) on the Internet and the only thing that gives me my smell back is prednisone. Have also done allergy injections, nebulizers, neti-pots, Flonase, etc. None of these things work.
    Being without smell is subtly debilitating. It takes away your drive, your pleasures of life and leads to depression. I wish the medical community would apply as much effort here as they do to the loss of hearing or sight since this is in many ways just as debilitating although in more subtle ways.
  • 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.
  • A life of depression and fatigue (1 response)
    1) Family history of depression, 2) Diagnosed depression 1964-not treated until 1973, 3) Worked in medical field 35 years, 4) Emergency on-call 24/7, 5) Hospital 15 times major depression, 6) Tried nearly all MAOI, TCA, SSRI, SNRI, and ECT. 7) 100% Disability in 1998 for depression. Now at age 70 I have dysthymia, chronic fatigue, COPD, and PTSD. My recommendation to younger people - do not over stress,
    do not smoke, avoid horrific or traumatic situations and try to find some enjoyment in life. If you have symptoms like mine seek early treatment put balance in your life. The often heard recommendations - get plenty of sleep, eat properly, learn to relax and avoid bad habits should not be ignored, they are critical to good physical and mental health.
  • A really bad day ritalin+orange juice
    I took Ritaline, then Orange juice. I couldn't do my exam at all...

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • I see no research on chantix use in narcoleptics, although altered dreams are reported in chantix studies with significant deviation from placebo rates and multiple variables of the sleep cycle are dysfunctional in narcolepsy. All three medications have rare reports of neurological/psychiatric side effects and risks.
    Prescribed med dosing schedule as follows:
    Ritalin LA 40 mg BID
    Chantix 1MG BID
    Deltasone 60mg QD to taper by 10 mg every other day until complete (sig 42 tablets)
    Pt noted to have acute psychosis with suicidal ideation, suicide attempt (nearly successful). Pt prescribed Ritalin approx 6 mos. prior, began Chantix 7 weeks prior (taken as directed), and was on the sixth day of the Deltasone taper.
