    Prednisolone for Bell's palsy

    Treatment with prednisolone (1st infusion, then daily 100mg for 5 days) had hardly any effect on the paralysis of the face, which is not uncommon in this disease. In fact, I suffer more from the side effects of the drug than from the disease itself. I felt very tired or very hyperactive since the second day of taking it, which could change every hour. I’m hardly able to drive or follow a more complex conversation. My otherwise over-punctual cycle has been postponed by 4 days, and that after 3 days of taking … In addition, I have increased 3 kg. Cortisone may be a great drug, but I’ll get an alternative treatment. Do not want to know what a long-term therapy must be like this!

    Side effects: Fatigue; Increase in weight

    Prednisolone for Bell's palsy

    Because of peripheral facial palsy I need to take Prednisolone, 100 mg for the first 7 days, then dose down for 9 days. The paresis has not improved so far, but in the course of treatment, more side effects of cortisone occur. At the beginning it was just an evening headache, today on day 7 I had some incredibly weak legs and constantly on the toilet. From tomorrow will be dosed down luckily.

    Prednisolone for Bell's palsy

    I was very glad that within 24 hours of the occurrence of my 6th facial nerve palsy, I was prescribed the drug prednisolone. 5 days 60 mg, then in 10 steps to 0, all for 10 days. Although my facial paralysis has improved this time, but I really have many side effects, such as tachycardia, in the down dosing I got breathless, sweat during sleep and restlessness. I hope that I feel better soon, I feel really hurt.
