    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.
