  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Headaches and muscle tension, racing heart and adrenaline rushes started shortly after taking 30 mg doses of prednisone (female 115lbs). After putting up with it for 24-36 hours the doctor advised her to get off prednisone immediately(no taper)...at the time we weren't familiar with prednisone and the need to taper off the medication...we think that this reaction has permanently affected her autonomic nervous system...she can become easily startled when nodding off to sleep and this starts a myriad of adrenaline rushes, rapid temperature swings, muscle tightness in head, neck and back...this spirals out of control to where she cannot fall asleep at all...it takes days and even weeks to get this settled back down and the only thing that helps her system settle down is through getting sleep...a sleep aid helps maybe the next day...these episodes usually occur in the evening prior to bedtime...which happens to be the when she first took prednisone and had her first reaction to the medication. We don't know if there is a correlation between the time of day of those occurrences or not. Very frustrating...looking for something to regulate her autonomic nervous system back to normal(if that is the true issue).
