Very high doses may occasionally cause temporary loss of milk supply. There was some initial research about Anabolic steroids causing weak tendons, but this has been tough to prove again. We also use steroid injections to treat tendinopathies. As such, I highly doubt Prednisone is causing any tendon weakening. I am unaware that prednisone directly effects these markers. MCV or mean corpuscular volume is measure of size of blood cell, effected by nutrtion or bone marrow processes.
MCH is hemoglobin in cell. No it does not: No Prednisone does not cause kidney damage. Long term use of Prednisone with moderate to high doses of Prednisone can cause elevation of blood pressure , but if the dose is reduced or Prednisone is stopped, the blood pressure comes down to normal.

Small amounts are ok. I think it is still a good idea to go and get that allergy test done. I am experiencing it myself right now, from Prednisone for allergies.
Ahhhh I had it Once I literaly could not sleep for 5 DAYS!!!!!!!!! I thought I was going to have a breakdown I tell every DR now im allergic to it I know what you went thru. The reason for the Anxiety and Panic attacks is simple: I'm on a treatment as we speak because I started having panick and anxiety attacks after an allergy treatment Prednisone for 7 days.
Thanks to this wonderful drug, my GABA and Serotonine levels decreased so I didn't have any "Brakes" as your brain starts to go out of sync. I would recommend anyone who has this symptoms to read "The Edge Effect", it explains everything in there. This is the worse drug for me ever!!! Alot of people on this site under prednisone has said the same. I was given this for vertigo, because the PA thought i had fluid in my ears.
By day three I was sick as a dog. Anxiety out the butt! Irritability, night sweats, weak, tired and could not sleep. Everytime I would try to fall asleep, I would feel these weird brain zapps in my head, and at the same time my body would heat up really hot, sweaty and heart racing fast. I woke up each time exhausted, confused and scared.
I woke up at least 6 times in one night! Then enough was enough, I went to the ER and they ran all test. My bp was high It took a month to get over these side effects. That was September 10, , now im doing much better. Almost back to my old self. I was put on this mess, and it has totally done a number on me. Could not sleep, messed with my BP which I already take meds for.
High heart rate still after being off of it for 7 days. My heart rate was , and that was waking up this morning. Irritabilty and felt like I literally had the flu. Can someone please tell me how long it took for the side effects to go away? It has almost been 7 weeks for me. I am better but on 0. I did not have any anxiety or panic symptoms before this.
I was also put on predisone 20 mg a day since August. Then my rhemy told me to taper down from 20, 15, 10, 5 every two weeks. A few weeks later I began feeling tired, then anxiety began. My Rhemy told me it was a UIT infection was put on antibotics a week later no changed.. Finally called my pcp told me to hurry into emergency room and was going through withdrawls. Was put back on 10mg the tiredness went away.
So the anxiety is still there and was told this should last when I taper down which will be in couple of months. This is a bad drug and I have been advising my family and community members to becareful of this drug. So my question is how long has your anxiety lasted? I will never use this drug again. I took pred in sept and by day three I was sick as a dog!!!! I was on a 6 day dose. I stopped it on day four or five. My anxiety was out the yahoo!!!! I went to the ER over 8 times in 2 months and none of those lazy butt doctors admitted it was the prednisone!
I suffered until early nov and wasnt fully better until mid december. A neurologist finally tole me two weeks ago, that it indeed was the pred. Your Rhemy is an idiot to say you had a UTI. But i am not surprised, thats what they do, misdianosed. Pred can possibly kill you, if stopped incorrectly. I really feel that drug should only be used for really sick people. Not healthy people, with minor issues!!!!! Dummy didnt have sense to refer me to a ENT!!! I have very heavy menstration so im anemic.
Anyway, just goes to show you are dumb and lazy PA's and some doctors are. You should be better after you fully stop Pred. Give your body 2 months, give or take. My experience with Prednisone is similar. I was given a 16 day course, starting at 40mg a day. Day 5, went to emergency room because couldn't breath, couldn't think. Doc told me to quit taking it immediately. For the next 3. Panic attacks which I didn't even know existed along with constant "not feeling right".
Doctor gave me some Ativan, which helped a little. I think it mostly helped me because it would make me drowsy, and I could fall asleep for a couple of hours. In the middle of that 3. During this period of time, I tried all kinds of things like walking, changing diet, etc. Finally, I went for some blood tests and they tested everything. Except I wasn't normal. The blood tests did at least make me feel like I could quit trying vitamins, switching up diets, etc.
I'm now basically back to normal, 4 months later. You will get better! I wish I had found a cure or something that would speed up the recovery from that poison, but I didn't. Nor could I find anyone that had found a cure either. My best advice is to sleep whenever you can, walk off some energy, and keep telling yourself this is all temporary, which it is. In September I stopped using my high does of nasacort nasal steroid cold turkey because supposedly it does not get into the system and doesn't need to be tapered what my Dr.
About 2 weeks later, my life fell apart. Horrendous withdrawal symptoms that clearly mean the cortisol has been in my entire system. Horrible muscle pains, tingling, numbness, nausea, fever, headaches, lost 10 pounds that I couldn't afford to lose, and perhaps most horrendous anxiety through the ROOF. It is 3 months later and I am still dealing with anxiety, nausea, and not feeling right.
The anxiety nearly led me to the ER this afternoon because I was going out of my mind. I never had any panic or anxiety issues prior to the steroid use. This is all new and very scary. I have 2 small kids and a husband that have been very patient, but I feel guilty that I've gone crazy. PLEASE, everyone, realize that nasal corticosteroids prescribed for allergies are still steroids, and don't go cold turkey even if your doctor says it will be fine.
I will be writing the FDA to encourage more education to the prescribing Drs. Of course, my prescribing Dr. The endocrinologist says it definitely can and did. Years ago I took prednisone for a bad poison oak problem. I read the physician's desk reference a few days into the treatment- I call the prednisone medicine Hell Pills. It took me many weeks to stabilize from the prednisone, not fun. Last Sept and November I received some 15 prednisone shots in my scalp hair falling out in small area on 2 occasions.
And I had a prednisone solution to wipe on the spot twice a day- I found later is was systemic to my fingers also. So I have had a lot of this drug injected into me recently. I have generalized anxiety, gained 12 pounds looks like mainly in my chest I never have a full chest which stayed bloated, my breathing was often labored, and there is now low grade wheezing - maybe my chamomile teas are backfiring I hear I have typical seasonal allergies.
Can't wait to have "me" back- and I wonder how long this will take. I bet I will be to spring with getting stabilized. The bottom line is that there is a pitiful effort made to inform patients with these medications. And prednisone is maybe sometimes a good drug, but for me it is awful. There is a mammoth amount of this negative information on this drug- the medical industry ought to be ashamed of itself. I've had similar experiences. Takes me a long time to get over the side effects once I'm off it.
Tell the doctors about it and they think I'm crazy or insulting them for even mentioning it. I really don't like this stuff at all. I was having difficulty breathing and went into the ER. I was just getting over a sever cold and flu, when it turned into Bronchitis. First time ever having it and I admit, I was a smoker quit when I contracted Bronchitis. They thought I had a blood clot at first, did a CT scan, and said it was good except I had swollen bronchial tubes.
They have me antibiotics and a prescription of Prednisone. Did 5 days of 40mg, one 20mg pill in the morning and one at night. Then I had 1 day of 20mg and then was done. On day 5, I noticed that the 12 hours in-between the pills, was starting to wear off. Started feeling anxiety settling in. We at dinner that night, after which I took my Prednisone pill. It takes about an hour for that stuff to start taking effect. Well, needless to say, after having eaten probably too much , the anxiety kicked in the sensation of not being able to breath pretty bad.
I thought I was going to bite it that night only The Prednisone must have kicked in because within an hour, I felt relaxed again and actually felt fatigued quite a bit and went to bed right away. The next day I took my last 20mg pill, but didn't feel too good. I went through the rest of the night and the next couple of days feeling like crap. Didn't get anxiety though because I was hardly eating anything as I thought initially that's what was triggering it.
This time I hadn't eaten a whole lot. But this attack wasn't going away. Tried to calm myself, tried various breathing exercises and other things to stay calm but nothing helped. An hour and a half later, I was up in the ER. Needless to say, I suffered through about another week of anxiety before it finally died down. But it became a "darned if I do, darned if I don't" time for me. The prednisone actually did help the inflammation of the bronchial tubes.
They were so inflamed, I couldn't cough up any phlegm, which just exasperated my problems and prolonged them. But which is the lesser of two evils They gave me Flovent and said that while it has Prednisone in there, that I wouldn't suffer from the anxiety Washing mouth out just not enough, I still feel the anxiety from the inhaler just as much as the pill. It's been a month and still trying to get over the Bronchitis stuff Wow I am glad I am not going crazy then after reading a lot of what I just read on this site.
I came to this site by searching some side affects on taking Prednizone and the possibility of anxiety etc. After reading everyone's notes on this I at least feel a lot less anxious than I did before reading it all. I have to get up for work in less than 5 hours and I just could not get settled down enough to sleep. I went to the DR because of tightness in my chest and learned that I had bronchitis and was then given a script for a heavy antibiotic and also Prednizone.
I think if I would have read this first I may have forgone the Prednizone. I am only on my third day of taking it and have three more days to take the rest and am supposed to wean off of it I guess. Seems as though I might be a little more uncomfortable even after that by what I read. Feeling like I almost wanted to go to the ER because I was anxious enough to think I was getting a heart attach but after reading this all, I feel much better.
Just have to get though the experience. I just read your post regarding prednisone withdrawal and am wondering if you received any anti-anxiety meds during the 4 months it took you to normalize back to yourself? I had mg of solu-medrol at hospital for adverse reaction to allergy shot and the only 2 days of 40mg prednisone - went back to ER 3 times that week - felt horrible, head heavy, fatigue, I couldn't have felt worse.
SED rate high - everything else normal. Then over next 3 weeks got every blood test - normal - MRI - normal! Thank goodness but still felt horrible. Then I had insomnia for 3 weeks. I am out 6 weeks and now have anxiety attacks, but today felt a little more myself at times. I do not want to start medications, but I feel like I can't get through this on my own. This thread has been very helpful for me, just wanted to post my experience.
I was given Prednisone after going to the hospital for a nasty bout of bronchitis - my asthma was getting worse and the rescue inhaler was not working well, so they gave me Prednisone. Debilitating panic attacks, pounding heartbeat, massive sweats at night, unable to sleep at all for days. The recovery has been unbelievably slow. For the first 2 months I couldn't sleep more than hours per night, now I am up to per night.
Never had any mental issues before whatsoever. I want to post this study, it was very helpful to me, it describes the problem to a T - "steroid psychosis". It suggest that phenothiazines can be very helpful when given right away. My doctor gave me Klonopin which helped slightly, but you can suffer bad withdrawal symptoms after only a short time on this med, I wish my docs had known to give phenothiazines instead, this study says that it can actually fix the psychosis quickly: Not sure how I am going to reduce the asthma at this point.
Anxiety and panic attacks coming back after being free from them for over 7 years. All this because I had to go on prednisone for a blocked ear by my ent doctor. I was on on 50mg for 2 days,40mg for 2 days,30mg for 2 days,20mg for 2 days. Many people seem to have worse anxiety after finishing prednisone so I can tell my wife now I am not going crazy. Finally able to sleep normally without any medication.
Still a tiny edge of fogginess and anxiety but it's fading fast. During the last several months of recovery I found strenous exercise very helpful, it worked better on the symptoms heart palpitations, anxiety, brain-fog, insomnia than any medication. Even though I was terribly exhausted from the lack of sleep I forced myself to go to the gym and it helped. For people suffering from this, I would say "hang in there".
For months I thought I'd never return to my old life of being normal. But I was getting better, every month I'd notice I was better than the month before, so I focused on that.
