C Edwards (2 years ago):

I must be in that .06%. Had a nasty sinus infection that was not abated by antibiotics x2 so was prescribed Prednisone. Approx 30-45 days after my treatment finished (and my sinus infection was cured) my OB/GYN found a lump in my chest "the size of a golfball" during a routine breast exam. Underwent many tests and finally had a referral to an Oncologist. He took one look at test results and asked me if I'd recently been on Prednisone, that I had no worries with cancer, but I did have costocondritis and that I shouldn't worry. His office visit took maybe 5 minutes.

  • 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 rx 3,3,2,2,1,1 plan suicidal haunts all day

  • 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 days ago):

  • Been on Asmanex since 12/19/14 - developed the flu on 12/23. Most of the other meds were added between 12/26 and 12/29. On 12/30 my pulmonologist upped the Asmanex to two puffs/day. That was about a week ago. Yesterday (1/6), my voice began to get hoarse. Today it's even more difficult to get sounds out, feels like I have to force myself to speak loud enough for people to hear me. If this is from the Asmanex, will it go away if I stop the med?

  • Took nyquil one night and woke up with my left hand all swollen. Have been on predlsone for four weeks for an upper respiratory infection. Could this be from the prednisone or the nyquil?
