  • Prednisone rx 3,3,2,2,1,1 plan suicidal haunts all day
    I came home from the Hospitol with a 3,3,2,2,1,1 Rx.
    I took (3) and spent the rest of the day contenplating Suicide.
    The rest of the Rx went in the Toilet by 7:pm.
    I wonder how many this Killed.
  • 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...
  • Prednisone mixed results-it lets me breath
    have been on prednisone now for 3 years straight. Am taking 30mg a day just to breath. every time i have tried to taper off i have ended up in the emergency room unable to breath. That has been 7 times in the last year. I am 49 years old and was in good health 3-4 years ago. got a cough and it has been down hill.Prednisone worked great at first but then it starts to destroy the body.Had nasal passage surgery(waste of time)have broken many ribs from coughing.painful.when you are on prednisone your body takes 3-5 times longer to heal.craked tailbone from a slip. have seen over 12 doctors.reasonable gueswork. My best doc which is mine says do you want to suffocate to death or let your body try and fix itself if it can. im not for suffocation at all. Just a good medicine to counter the angriness of the steroid. Any ideas i am all ears. oh ya my eyes are starting to go and my joints as well
  • Prednisone side effects (1 response)
    Took this for 6 days, tapering at the end to treat a rash caused by a spider bite. The heartburn started on day 1 but the other symptoms didn't begin until day 4. None we're severe but they weren't fun either. The blurred vision was worst.

  • Severe low back pain

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Sick for over six weeks now with severe diarrhea and nausea on eating. Ordinary stool cultures negative. Special stool cultures (cryptosporidia, cyclospora, isosspora) all negative. Colonoscopy/endoscopy negative, including for microscopic colitis. Have not found any food tolerable. The more eaten, the worse the bouts (both severity and number). Any/all foods have same effect. BRATS diet did not work. Generous doses of Immodium + prescribed bowel relaxer mildly effective but result in greatly increased nausea. Doctors have no clue what is wrong.
