Comments from related studies:
From this study (8 months ago):
One day after my last dose of prednisone, I woke up at 3am having trouble breathing, tightness in my chest, feeling as if not enough air in the room, rapid heart rate, coughing, feeling of panic, jittery, feeling cotton-mouthed, increased urination and high blood pressure. This went on for 2 hours before subsiding. For the next several days these "attacks" have continued in waves on and off throughout the day and night. It's been 6 day since coming off prednisone. My dosage was 3 tabs a day x 3 days, 2 tabs a day x 3 days and 1 tab a day x 3 days.
From this study (4 years ago):
