prednisone
1742views
I was orig put on hydrocortisone, my joints all went bad, I had confused brain and memory loss. Then they put me on prednisolone, god I was in a rage all the time. At the end of 3 weeks my brain felt like it was going to burst. I'm being told I need steroids to live. But since I've taken them I'm just egsisting. I have trouble walking, my feet are so painful and my brain is mush.

I was put prednisone for wheezing. I am 46. On day 4. My heart
Rate is going down to as low as 52. I have dry mouth and
I'm talking more than normal. I have anxiety normally
And I'm freaking out about my heart rate. I can't confirm that its the
Prednisone but my heart rate is typically fast.
I am afraid my heart is going to just stop.
Marnie46  |  March 29, 2014
Prednisone had a similar effect on me. I became a lot more violent and easily irritated. I found that normal things would set me off and make me rageful. My mood was almost bipolar. It does go away once off the med for about a week or so. The mental changes are not permanent at all, but they are definitely the result of Prednisone.
March 24, 2014
Yes, definitely. This has happened to me as well as my sister, especially when the steroid (prednisone) levels are high. Talking more like if your really have too much caffeine in your system, also constant urination (more at night) and lastly sudden changes in mood.

YES! I am in the VERY same boat with my dad! I wish I had seen your post sooner.

Prednisone and Suicidal
i was on prednisone 40mg i feel awful and low mood , cry every day i want kill myself not worth my life i hate steriod affect my heart fast beat and ectopic beat terrible but steriod reduce 5mg start feel better
yvonne  |  April 15, 2014
I was on 80 mg a day at the peak and it made me quite angry and violent. I was never near suicide but it definitely messed with my mind. However, I found that this effect ended about a week after I stopped taking it, and I did not have any serious withdrawal problems.

Yes, "speedy and talkative" is a common effect. The psychotic effects can kick in on higher doses. My husband was on 160 when he became psychotic the first time and 90 the second. What is important is that depression can occur while coming off, even tapering the correct way. Doctors know about that. What they need to also know is how to treat those who do show extreme lability. What you can do is make sure your doctors are aware.
Lighthouse  |  January 23, 2014
I'm so sorry to hear about your experience. I am wondering if my mom will get like that when she stops the prednisone. While on it, she is speedy and talkative and child-like acting. I'm wondering if it will be like a crash effect when it gets out of her system. Was your husband ever speedy and talkative on it?

trunkel obesity caused by prednisone
I am currently in Anatomy and Physiology II at Northwest Florida State College and it sounds like you might have Cushing's Disease. General signs and symptoms of this includes fat redistribution (Truncal Obesity) and weight gain. However, it is treatable because all it is, is an overproduction of the hormone Cortisol. With that being said, just tell your family physician that you need a lab for your Cortisol/Corticosterone levels. Hope this helps!!

yes taking too much prednisolone can raise your cortisol levels causing obesity ie, cushings disease and un fortunately the only way to get rid of it is exercise, and also metabolic tests to check insulin levels hopes this helps

Itching all over...Celebrex, Methotrexate, Hydrochlorothiazide the cause???
Txbetty and Hal, Like both of you, I have been on Celebrex for at least a year. I also take HCTZ 12.5 mg and started Methotrexate two months ago. I did have itching all over like you described, Txbetty, and I figured out that it was simply the particular brand of folic acid I was taking. It's been a long time since you wrote your post, but I happened to see it and wanted to comment. I assume you are taking folic acid if you are still on MTX; if you are still itching then it is something to

I have been on Celebrex for over a year and had fantastic results. I suffered pain in my neck and shoulders due to arthritis. Celebrex was like a miracle for me. I was going to physio for the pain, which did not good. Now after being pain free for one year I have been experiencing extreme itchiness all over my body. It feels like something crawling in my scalp, eyebrows, nose and beard. Then it feels like something biting me and there is nothing there and I have no bites . Yikes.
