    Prednisolone for Optic nerve inflammation

    Extreme side effects after switching from 5 x 1 g cortisol shock therapy iV for optic nerve inflammation. Afterwards, reduce from 225 g to 0 in 14 days. No sleep possible at the changeover, extreme mood swings (euphoria / nervous breakdown). Extreme motivation / urge to move. Walk around for hours with simultaneous physical exhaustion and high weight loss. Afterwards giant appetite (at first 8 kg lost in one week, then increased again in 2 weeks). Loss of taste (salt without taste, only greasy / sweet recognizable). tremendous joint pain in the knees in the middle of the night shortly before the end of the reaming. Feels like a vise. In sum, the most intense physical experience so far – and that really means something.

    Prednisolone for Thrombocytopenia

    I’ve been on Prednisolone for almost a year. Dosage at the moment 5mg (starting with 100mg). The decisive point is thrombocytopenia. My high-dose experience: sleep disorder, restlessness, rapid heartbeat, cold sweating, steroid acne, typical moon face, mood swings with depression, and those annoying cravings. Since about 20mg: formation of glaucoma (glaucoma) and increase in intraocular pressure about one hour after taking the drug. Pain in the foot, knee, hip, shoulder and finger joints (gradually … beginning with the knees). Increased formation of darkening (acne) about 3cm tall. With 5mg: cravings, sleep disturbance, restlessness and depression, as well as pain in the joints continues to exist. There was also a very peculiar and very penetrating smell in the Axelhölen … not two minutes after washing, the smell was back. (presumably it is in connection with L-thyroxine 50mg). It is also an uncontrollable change between being awake and being extremely tired again. Think this is due to the shut down immune system. As far as my experience with the drug.

    Prednisolone for Arthrosis

    I started using prednisolone 40 mg because of a deterioration in my copd. It followed a high-altitude flight. I was full of verve and thought it was great that I suddenly felt so good. My pain in my joints was gone, too. Finally run painless again. That was great. Together with my doctor, I agreed to permanently take 5 mg because of osteoarthritis. Imperceptibly, my psyche changed. I became aggressive, had mood swings, and got very bad anxiety and depression. At some point I came to the conclusion that it has to do with the prednisolone. I just stopped taking it. Unfortunately, the pain started again. My new family doctor prescribed my prednisolone again. I started 15 mg again 3 weeks ago. I should take 15 mg, 12.5 mg, 10 mg, 7.5 mg for 1 week until I reach 5 mg. At 15 mg, I was almost in high spirits again. Now I am at 10mg and have very bad anxiety and panic attacks and depression. I came to the conclusion that I would rather endure the pain, rather than these states of anxiety. If possible I do not want to take cortisone anymore.

    I regularly take Ciclosporin. However, my kidneys have re-ignited every 2-3 years. then I take cortisone. Helps after 2 weeks. Start at 75mg, then cull. The side effects are enormous: weight gain (up to 10 kilos), bad to no digestion (almost 10 days not been on the potty) nocturnal pain in the stomach and chest area, sweating, smell funny, bad mood swings, strong concentration difficulties. But the kidneys have recovered 🙂 Oh yes: and my migraine went away in the time of cortisone.

    Prednisolone for Morbus crohn

    I now take cortisone and pantoprazole after my third bad episode occurred during my Crohn’s disease. I have had much worse relapses with hospitalization and fewer side effects, but since that episode, cortisone has hit my heart. Started with 40mg per day and am now after a long bleaching phase and many setbacks at 10mg. It looks as if the disease is contained, but the side effects are quite annoying: 1. strong moon face 2. depression (now has to take antidepressants additionally, had a strong basic sadness 3. no satiety and binge eating (+ 8kg) 4 Severe fatigue and listlessness 5. Concentration difficulties 6. Mood swings 7. Stomach problems (but pantoprazole, helps quite well) Finally, cortisone is the only drug that strikes me during a spurt and even if I hate the side effects and feel ugly + sad I am I realize that I prefer to live like that, with the strong MC pain.

    Prednisolone for Morbus crohn

    Kortision helps quickly and relatively well. If only there were not all the side effects. I have to take it since 01/2006 at different intervals and dosages. In 09/2007, my inflammation became so severe that only a dose of 120mg over 10 days remedy. Then it went weekly in 20 steps down to 80mg, then back up to 100mg (because of the inflammation). Then down to 60mg. Then up to 80mg again. Then I made it to 20mg and had to go up to 60mg again and then managed to sneak out. The salvation process was very painful for me. I was startled by leg cramps at night, had strong cortisone acne, severe mood swings, sleep disorders, bulls, weight gain up to 17kg, endless water retention, heavy legs, fatigue, euphoria, Cushing’s syndrome, severe vision problems in both eyes, heartburn. In the meantime, I did not leave the house for about six weeks. The following has helped me with the symptoms: magnesium for cramps; Stinging nettle, bowl salts No. 7 (e.g., the hot sieves, ten tablets in a glass of boiling water, stirring with a plastic spoon) against the water retention; Drüfusan against cortisol acne; Rennie against the heartburn; Psyllium husks against diarrhea, constipation and flatulence (life threatening in stenoses); Vitasprint (vitamin B12) for fatigue. IMPORTANT IN THIS TIME IS THE INTRODUCTION OF IDEOS (calcium preparation, it prevents, inter alia, osteoporosis) (there is the way, by prescription)! Cortisone is a difficult time, but it will pass someday.
