  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Dr. thinking I may have an issue with serotonin carcinoid/syndrome-bad reaction to prednisone therapy this time? stomach acid, then crazy flashing of skin/hive like? with and without sweating, agitation, rapid heart beat, high blood pressure-150/85, and running temp 101.5
    just seen, took me off tramadol, (which I have taken for years), added hydroxyzine, and is having me do 5-HIAA. Question is what caused all this? Never had an issue before now with prednisone or tramadol?
    Is it possible that the prednisone caused this?
