    Prednisolone for Morbus crohn

    I started with 60mg for 10 days. The first side effects were fast, I gained 10 kilos, got a big belly and a big face. Joint pain, severe reflux, swollen lymph nodes, fatigue, loss of libido, and irritability set in during treatment. At 20mg the complaints started from the beginning, the dosage was increased again to 50mg. Since the cortisone seems to have a bad effect, it should now be an immunosuppressant. I’m a bit clueless now and do not know if that’s the right thing. The use of cortisone, however, should be treated with caution in any case.

    When I was admitted with my inflammation in the university hospital, I got the cortisone first on the vein, so it works faster, that went on for 5 days. Was then discharged and had to take tablets 100mg at the beginning and then in 10 he / per steps downwards. It hit well and the inflammation is gone. Am now at 70 mg and the side effects are annoying. My blood pressure fluctuates constantly from heart racing not to mention, sleep disturbances and at night I wake up totally sweaty. Water retention on stomach and face. Luckily, I have no stomach problems because I get my own tablets for protection. I feel uncomfortable in my own body since taking it and am constantly depressed or irritated. Now and then headaches occur 1 hour after the intake, which are not strong, but it disturbs the concentration. My blood values are up to the leukocytes (with me 19 – normal value is to 10) ok. On top of that, I usually feel very powerless.

    Very strong heart palpitations and heart hunts. Very high blood pressure increase. At times dizziness. Tension / pressure on the chest. Very fast fatigue when walking. Even little effort leads to chest tightness leading to anxiety and fear of dying. Irritability. I had to take a dose of 200 mg for 7 days. Now for 4 days 75 mg and then for another 4 days 50 mg and 4 days 25 mg. I noticed that the symptoms got worse despite the fact that the dose was reduced.

Pressure in the chest and abdomen. Ever since the 7th day, I have been feeling worse and worse and have almost no feeling of thirst. Since the second week I am extremely sensitive to headaches and insomnia. First I could not sleep through then it was only 3 hours of sleep per night with many interruptions and meanwhile sheep I partly not at all or only in the minutes area if it will be 30 min in one night I am meanwhile already happy. In addition, I am the corresponding permanently powerless but have an extreme urge to move and can not resist accompanied by hunger pangs and corresponding weight gain on average 3 kg per week. Now I take it for 5 weeks and have for 2 days an unpleasant feeling of heat of the facial skin and since 4 days, the skin in the genital area dried out and brittle which, for example, when washing is very painful because the foreskin gets each time entry. The worst thing for me is that my friends and family are suffering because I am constantly irritated and accordingly fast as the HB male go to the ceiling. Now I am in the process of sneaking out the prednisolone. From 75mg down to 50mg and continue in 10mg steps and then replace it with another drug.

    I am 16 years old and I am taking cortisone since my diagnosis in March. At the beginning, I was prescribed 50mg and it did not take long until the first side effects showed up. In the first few weeks you could not do anything with me, because I really could have slept through, nobody would have woken me. Luckily, that has lessened. I just noticed that as soon as I reduce the dose, I’m dead again a day later. I suddenly got 5 kg on it within 1 week, I was always hungry for food and ate everything that got in my way, and you could see that, especially on the stomach and on the face. By now I am on 7.5mg but I have to be a nightmare, I am constantly irritated and become so easily aggressive that I’m scared myself. Sometimes you can not even hug me because it even gets on my nerves. I already have a history with depression, but since I have not had any problems with it until the time when I started to take the cortisone, I’m sure he’ll get away with it. 5kg I have also lost, only the water will not let go why my stomach is still thicker than it is. Cortison is really the last dirt and I’m glad that I hope to drop it again soon.
