Be very careful with prednisone, it is an extremely powerful drug that can can tons of horrible side effects and long term permanent issues. I am still fighting with adrenal problems 3 years after I needed two 5 day tapers in a month, my body and it's stress response probably will never go back to the way it was. You need to get an appointment with a specialist and figure out the root cause of the problem and not just bandaid it with the meds.
I started thinking that all the Doctors were self medicating with antidepressants so they though everything was fine if you just take this little pill. I know in some cases people do need antidepressants. But I can't believe that was the opinion of every doctor that I saw.
everything was falling apart....then I was diagnosed with lung sarcoidosis and given prednisone short term....I'm sorry but it was the best week I have had in a long time....yes I became manic but in the depths where I was it was it was a blessing....but now I'm off it and back to feeling emotionally paralyzed....I'm going to talk to my Dr.
My therapist suggested looking info on different types of meds that help with anxiety, are non-habit forming, and are not in the classification of antidepressants. What do you know about this and do you know of any websites that can help me with this?
Am desperate for some answers am tired of being told its all normal aches and pains, nothing wrong with you. Take antidepressants/valium god knows what else I have been given but its driving me insane. What ever is going on is cruel and makes it harder not getting a doctor to find answers for me. And doctors do not like to be told that you want certain tests done, its taken 3 years to insist on a Gastro referral from my GP and only got it because had blood in toilet.
and he says they have a lot of patients with neuro symptoms with thyroid problems. Shouldn't they go away with thryoid replacement? I'm at a good level of medicine according to my blood tests and it just doesn't make any sense to me.
About 2 years ago he was diagnosed with hypothyroid. On aug 3 07, he was diagnosed with ITP. We have been battling the ITP with the low platelets and using IVIG to raise his counts. In March 08, he was diagnosed with Morphea (autoimmune to his skin), we also thought, based on his stool and blood tests that he had Ulcerative colitis.

It's common to have worse symptoms when the weight goes up. If you were able to control symptoms with medications and weight control (some antidepressants typically cause weight LOSS), then you wouldn't need surgery. Antireflux surgery is very effective, however, when done in the right circumstances and by an experienced surgeon.
I know it's the primary tool in testing for it but what is the percentage that they miss and how far can the scope get into the terminal illieum and small intestine to do biopsies. I've had abdominal pain with occasional blood in the stool. The abdominal seems to be more intense in the appendix area though I don't have appedicitis.
People with moderately severe disease who are not confined to bed usually take oral corticosteroids such as prednisone. Prednisone in fairly high doses frequently induces a dramatic remission. After prednisone controls the inflammation of ulcerative colitis, sulfasalazine Some Trade Names AZULFIDINE , olsalazine Some Trade Names DIPENTUM , or mesalamine Some Trade Names ASACOLCANASA often is given to maintain the improvement.
I can't tell if I felt better taking the dessicated thyroid because I was so miserable with hives and very drugged up. My endocrinologist with my HMO told me not to take the Naturethroid and instead try Synthroid at an increase of 137mg. I tried this for a week and didn't feel as good as on Naturethroid so I went back to the natural stuff. My hives continue through all of this and I was hoping that they would get better with the thyroid correction.
I have had chronic rhomboid muscle pain on the right side for 10 years, and have seen numerous MD's(MRI with no significant problem found), Chiropractors (Adjustments & pressure point message), Physical Therapists (waste of money) and a Neurologist that is currently performing acupuncture. I self medicate with Ibuprofen, and sleep on an ice pack every night.
When and if I find something that helps, I will post. Meanwhile, my thoughts are with all of us who have these crazy symptoms with no answers. Hang in there.
It says that this illness can cause blindness if you do not take prednisone so I take it. Prednisone causes a multitude of other medical problems, it helps one and creates new ones. Since being on prednisone I have allot of water retension all over my body, especially my legs and feet.Some days I can hardly walk because of the pain from edma. The pills to reduce the water do not work for me. Please contact me if you have this illness.
, ana, ssa antibodies, low platelets etc. What bothers me is that doctors won't treat me with any more than prednisone, antimalarial medications. None have affected my scalp condition. What other options might there be. Doctors now say I need antidepressants.

I have been on .5 mgs xanax twice a day for about 16 years. It all started with the passing of my oldest son. I took antidepressants and xanax to help me get back to living again and to stop panic attacks. I stopped smoking shortly after that with the help of Welbutrin. Shortly after that I developed Systemic Lupus and was on a ton of prednisone and methotrexate for 8 years.
The fibro is under control with my Cymbalta and along with restarting Pednisone, she also gave me Methtroxate 2.5 mg. x 8 pills once a week. This last medicine was prescribed because she knew I didn't want to go back on Prednisone. This metho is for cancer patients and she said that in some people, poly stays with that person in the form of flare-ups, which I am having. She also reported of a low vitamin of D and Folic Acid. So, I have to take those.
Hi, 'Urticaria is generally caused by direct contact with an allergenic substance, or an immune response to food or some other allergen, but can also appear for other reasons, notably emotional stress. The rash can be triggered by quite innocent events, such as mere rubbing or exposure to cold. Drug treatment is typically in the form of Antihistamines such as diphenhydramine, hydroxyzine, cetirizine and other H1 receptor antagonists.

Things have been kind of rough for me morale wise lately, which seems fairly ridiculous given that I'm on 300mg wellbutrin XL and 20mg of lexapro daily. I mean, that's enough antidepressants to keep a team of horses happy you'd think. Rationally, I know its just the interferon doing this to me, so that helps a little. There's not really any single thing that I feel unhappy about actually.
My symptoms began as myalgias and fatigue and I was diagnosed as fibromyalgia and treated with antidepressants for years. I've always had sleep trouble and GI complaints, so I seemed to accept this diagnosis. Over the last 3 months, I began having generalized numbness and tingling with associated burning and hypersensitivity of my skin, a raw feeling in my mouth and painful teeth. My muscle aches and fatigue continue and seem to get worse with weather change and stress.
Wish I could help sweetie. Sterile wound wash, or a shower to clean with soap & water. bandage her up. See how you feel in the morning. At this point the thing popped. You may want to go back on an anti-biotic though. You are taking so much medication already. I have no idea how the steroids work with your fibro meds....but I would consider the higher dosages. 5mg is clearly not doing a thing. Talk about it with her.
Could be temporal arteritis- I don't know what it is, but very disturbing to have to live with with each day. I took prednisone for a week and it seemed to help, but doctor is reluctant to give me more. Not sure where to go with this. Any ideas? I could use help in whatever form is neccessary.
Corticosteroid therapy should be instituted at relatively low dosages (15 to 25 mg/day of prednisone or equivalent) and in a controlled setting in patients with myasthenia gravis. Respiratory support should be available, and the dosage should be increased stepwise as tolerated (approximately 5 mg/day of prednisone or equivalent at 2- to 3-day intervals until marked clinical improvement or a dosage of 50 mg/day is reached).
Your cycle seems pretty normal to me - your night was a maybe tad high but overall was much in keeping with the cycle. Being high at night actually points to Cushing's (that is what I used to have and my cortisol used to blast high at night). I would not think though that one day of testing is sufficient - but you also need sodium and potassium testing. AI is a salt wasting disease so those tests would be abnormal as well. DHEA-s would be related to the abnormal periods.
I took prednisone long term and othre than looking and feeling like a blow fish it didn't affect me.
