    Prednisolone for Heartburn; Morbus crohn

    Persistent use of Prednisolone sponges the body and the skin becomes thin and cracked. So-called pregnancy scars have remained with me. Often you also get strong acne.

    Prednisolone for Thrombocytopenia

    I had an autoimmune reaction after pregnancy, which was expressed as below 15,000 platelets. I got hematoma everywhere, and gum bleeding after brushing my teeth. I was then treated with a shock therapy. At the moment I am still taking 40mg of the drug and have to say that I am doing very well! I can concentrate much better and almost everything is easier than before. The drug pushes me right and I’m a lot more powerful than before. As a young mother that’s just right :-). Regular exercise and a healthy diet currently help me maintain my weight. Soon I only have to take 25 mg of cortisone and I’m curious to see if I can control myself like that or whether my increased mental control leaves me again (I hope not, because the feeling is awesome). The fact is that then the water retention disappear again and I look forward to it. So I can not report anything negative.

    Side effects: Euphoria; Water storages

    Prednisolone for Sarcoidosis

    Because of the sarcoidosis, I first have 40mg for 3 weeks, then 30mg for 4 weeks, then 5mg down every 4 weeks and the remaining time 5mg per day. Side effects were on the first day by shaking to notice, after 3 weeks I was totally pampered, my environment was shocked, even strangers spoke to me I would not look good if everything was ok. In the 4 months I have 19Kg increased, of which were apparently 5Kg of water went down immediately after discontinuation down, the rest is persistent and can be difficult to get rid of even with diet and sports.

    I started in the first week with 20mg and then every week lowered by 2.5mg down to 5mg. For the first two weeks I was still fine. Often had red cheeks and about an hour after taking mild pain in the kidney area. But from the third week it went downhill continuously … I got more pimples and generally had an exciting, thin skin. There were also headaches, only light but persistent. In addition, high blood pressure, palpitations, sweating, nervousness, blurred vision, water retention, weakness, difficulty concentrating, cravings …. The list is long. For short-term use, it is a good thing, but with prolonged use, I would weigh … Only for me, if it is not otherwise unbearable.

    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.

    Prednisolone for Lung infection

    Prednisolone for carminative pneumonia. 1st week in the morning 40 mg, 2nd week 30 mg, 3rd week 20 mg, soon 10 mg, etc. Side effects include blurred vision, dizziness, high blood pressure, increased appetite, weight gain, gums hurts in places, tremors, sensory disturbances, mood swings, aggression, Forgetfulness, blurred vision, at night partial pressure on the chest, flatulence, lying awake at night for several hours, in the afternoon food cravings, water retention on the face, partial joint pain in the hips and knees. Why does not my doctor tell me about these side effects before ?! Especially about the risk of osteoporosis and that you should also take calcium?

    Prednisolone for Dizziness

    After the shock therapy with 3 applications, therapy was switched to tablet form. Initially with 90mg in the morning, then spread to the day, then dose down to 80mg and now to 60mg descending by 2mg less a day. At first I was fine, but after about a week, it started with euphoria, turning up, racing heart. In contrast, there are now drugs that are designed to keep the adrenaline under control. This was accompanied by dizziness that does not even go away when you turn your head, balance problems when walking. Fast walking is no longer possible. I get pimples / acne on my back, on my face, on the tip of my tongue and on my neck. My skin, especially on the hands, looks dry, white and wrinkled, like someone older. I’m only 42. I’m fat, constantly hungry, water retention under the eyes, get a big face and can only tilt my head back with difficulty (bull’s neck). Problems with climbing stairs. I have the feeling of being powerless. For some time furry taste in the mouth. Somehow everything tastes bland and carbonated, for example in Cola triggers a burning on the tongue. I have the impression that the hair grows slower and the nails softer. From time to time I have blurred vision, so blurred, sometimes left right times. Ophthalmologist examined, all i.O., probably comes from this devil stuff. I was declared unfit for driving, very good, then I can kill myself right away, where I’m not far away. Oh yes and I think I have a funny smell on me or I smell too bad. I just want to get rid of that stuff. That’s the worst thing I’ve ever come across drug and about which I was never enlightened by anyone.

    Prednisolone for Ulcerative colitis

    strong weight gain (weight has more than doubled!). Full moon face, double chin, sweats, insomnia, nausea, heartburn, nervousness, joint pain (bones and tendons are porous). Muscle aches. Eye pain (pressure pain). Several teeth lost (are simply crumbled – not because of caries.) Dental implants are due to partly deficient bone substance not settable.Hair loss water retention of some 1-3 kilograms overnight! Depressed moods. Fortunately, I have found a doctor, which brings me out of the cortisone cerebral circulation.Cortisone should, based on my experience for my terms, not be taken for more than 1-2 years.

    Prednisolone for Ulcerative colitis

    To cortisone in general, one can only say: really only take if there is no other way! Although it helped me well against my thrusts / inflammation of the colitis, but the side effects can be quite severe. Among other things, very strong sweating, the sleep is often disturbed, it can lead to Aufschwämmung / water retention and last but not least, it has now caused me with osteoporosis, so degradation of bone density and cartilage / intervertebral discs / joints. Price / performance ratio I can not judge, because I get the cortisone on prescription and do not know how much it costs.

    Prednisolone for Sarcoidosis

    I have to undergo cortisone therapy for 7 months due to sarcoidosis. During this time, cortisone was gradually reduced from 80mg initially. The sarcoidosis has disappeared but there were quite a few side effects during this time. At first everything tasted of metal. By Wasseinlagerungen I took 18Kilo, which are now dismantled, however. Cortisone attacks the gastric mucosa resulting in heartburn, on the other hand, there were tablets that also helped. At first I always got calf cramps at night, whereas magnesium helped, besides, I could fall asleep badly and sweat a lot at night. The cortisone promotes fungal infections, in my case there was an infection in the mouth, in the genital area and in addition also hemorrhoids and flatulence. The most painful thing was the infection in my mouth, because I always had the feeling that I had to drink something. Fortunately, all of these side effects have disappeared towards the end of therapy. Towards the end of the therapy, I suddenly had a vision disorder. I got up in the morning and could not recognize the font on my phone which went without problems the previous evening. A check-up with the ophthalmologist said the eyesight is 100% there and nothing can be detected on the eye, but now you are far-sighted and need reading glasses. This is now 6 weeks ago my vision fluctuates strongly, sometimes I can see better and sometimes worse, I hope, of course, that still with the time is still. Conclusion: As good as it helps cortisone, it is a devil of all the side effects, even if most side effects are gone, I would prefer other therapies if there are any.
