Prednisone withdrawal in dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Prednisone withdrawal in dogs


I have been waking up every morning, for over a year, feeling like I'm in withdrawals. What do others, that are forced to stay on hydrocodone to ease pain, do in order to not feel this way in the mornings? I had a doctor that told me the only way I could stop this is to set a clock and take more around 2 am. I never felt this way prior to the few months on the stronger drugs.
If you have ever been through withdrawal or experienced the beginning of withdrawal while waiting for a prescription to be called in or filled, then the prospect of going through withdrawal is frightening. The only way to the other side of this fear is through it... unfortunately, not many people understand Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrom (PAWS) and the reason why it is difficult to stay off of opiates after the initial hell of withdrawal is over.

I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Otherwise, you're waiting until Monday, and that is a long time in this situation. You also need to know what to do about the prednisone, since sudden withdrawal can cause symptoms. I don't know if the two or three days that he was on it was enough to cause that kind of problem. So maybe you really do need to call the vet. Here, we have emergency veterinary clinics that you can go to over the weekend, if necessary.

Hi Friends! Welcome all Tramadol warriors. We're all very glad to see you. Please come in and share.
It is possible that they can last this long. Most people say they go away in a day or two, but in very sensitive dogs, it takes much longer. My dog was knocked flat by the loading dose and barely moved for the first couple of days. He bumped into objects, seemed blind, responded to sounds incorrectly (looked in the wrong direction), tripped, stumbled, and fell flat on his stomach a few times when trying to walk.
I would say that your not having withdrawal symptoms states that your truly in pain and you are taking them legitamatly and therefore your not experiencing the withdrawal others may experience. I know the thought of taking meds your entire life is not something that you look forward to but you need to assess whether you need them or if your not taking them because of the guilt and therefore your suffering when you don't need to be.
7 1/2 years ago I lost the hearing in my right ear causing severe vertigo. I went to a specialist who put me on Prednisone and ordered an MRI and bloodwork. All tests came back clear. After a month I was tapered off the Prednisone and felt weak, nauseous, shaky, some muscle twitching, some burning sensations and at one point my throat felt a little swollen for a short period.
He vomits (violently) many times a day, can't eat more than 1/2 cup of soup or a glass of Instant Breakfast in a day. He lays in his bed and I can hear him throwing up and moaning in agony and I don't know what to do!!! He can't take any Xanax or any opiods of any kind or the clinic won't give him the methadone, so I have no idea how to help ease his pain. Please, please tell me what I can do ... This is ripping my heart out!!!!
You didn't say if you went cold turkey off the Pred at the same time you stopped the Vicodin and Valium. Prednisone withdrawal is a real *****. (Why the valium? Makes no sense, best drug to help relax the gut spasms and help sleep is Donnatal.) You are correct that the Vicodin can help the D (diarrhea) that you get when you are in a flare, but if you aren't having pain, you can get just as good, if not better, relief from Imodium AD. I *always* have a box of that on my desk!
All bloodwork was normal. Took a job in Iraq where I am currently. Arrived in Feb. In Jun, I was sick with extreme fatigue, headaches, and dizziness. Saw a doctor in Jul and was given OTC headache meds. They did bloodwork that came back normal. Since that time I have had daily head pressure and tinnitus. The tinnitus comes and goes and can be really loud and annoying. Visited another doctor in Sep who thought it might be an allergic reaction and was given zyrtec for a month.
I've seen a dentist, an opthalmologist, an optometrist, had four blood tests taken (one in Jan., one in Feb., one in March to test for Lupus, and the last one last week in the ER). Bromfenex seemed to help a little, but it's extended release, so it puts me into a zombie state. Astelin made me feel bad, and Nasonex works for two seconds. My humidifier stuffed me up even more. I'm looking into trying a Z-Pack, and will be drinking just lukewarm water and hot teas until summertime.
My therapist finally broke through to me recently and helped me realize that in order to get my life in balance I needed to address my pain issues and if that meant being on a PM program to have better quality of life then so be it. And that I needed to get over my anxiety of "being a PM patient". I finally went in a spilled my guts to my PCP, which was REALLY HARD. I told him about my daily pain that I was hiding. I told him everything through tears. He was so kind.
I do receive a script for this med, but I've had a few doctors in the past few years because of insurance purposes so it has been easier to get these pills. My doctor is now telling me that I should really consider longterm treatment rather than short term. I still have not taken another pill since friday morning and I'm feeling a little better. I actually had a meal today, I can't say that I kept it all in, but at least I was able to eat.
I also have a dog and I read that this parasite is prevalent in dogs and NEEM is used to control it. I wonder if my dog is effecting my Blepharitis!!! I previous thought that contact with my pet caused my skin rashes & eye problems due to a general allergy to his dander. Now I'm thinking it may be his mites. After reading up on DEMODEX treatments online, I see that SEA BUCKTHORN OIL is also used to teat DEMODEX.
I was wondering if Lyme Diease can be dormant without even knowing you were bit by a tick, I dont ever recall being bit by a tick, I dont even go in wooded areas or live around where theres deers, I have dealing with nerve caused from taking a medication but was suggested to get a Lyme test done, I got the IgG/IgM Borelli test done it came back NON-Reactive , that test was done here in Canada, but someone told me that Lyme can be dormant , was wondering if that is only if someone had a deer tick
He can watch the kids after school for a while to save money until he gets a job. I still bring the baby to work with me. So could be still be in withdrawal? Now about me... How long will i feel like ****? I'm taking thur and fri off from work and have the weekend. Can i make it to work Monday? I have to go to my two kiddies orientation to meet their teachers on friday evening, my husband can stay home with the baby.
A crawling sensation in skin is seen in people who are very anxious and stressed out. Very dry skin (you rule this out) and disorders of thyroid gland all can precipitate a crawling sensation. The other possibility is Morgellons disease often mimics scabies. The disease is believed to be caused by weak immune systems in people that have contracted the tick-borne Lyme Disease at some point in their life. It can also be a fungal infection like Tinea corporis.
My itchiness has been getting progessively worse for the past few years. I'd say almost 3 yrs now. It's to the point where I can't even engage in intercourse with my partner, go shopping or even go out in the sun. I keep hearing and reading how Urticaria, usually has signs on the skin surface but I don't, except for the really bad itchy feeling.
That is just a withdrawal. Your emotions were held up for 4 weeks in your body, numb inside because of the opiates. They tend to block real emotions. Now that your not taking them, you emotions are coming back. This is a good thing as it means your getting better. It doesn't seem like it, but i promise, you'll feel alot better in a day or two. I am sure you get the restless leg, chills, etc as well. This is normal and won't last long. The first 3 days are the worse.
I will tell you that PREDNISONE is awesome! With muscle relaxers, it takes the swelling down in the spine, now i can walk and breath without hurting, so it tells me that some of you need to see the doc for bulging disks. They are not always caught on mri's since they are not always bulging...Mine was finally caught...My T7 compression frature causes my breathing issues(goes around my ribs from the spine to th e front).
The main point is that it took 15 months post treatment for me to start feeling normal and I am sure most people fall in this category. Aside from prednisone, I am unaware of any form of chemo that is as powerful a psychoactive as the drugs we take on this forum. I do believe that we deserve some slack in this area. Instead of a permanent ban for long standing members, how about a temporary one that is a cool down period?
and that's why they gave me Prednisone, to get the swelling out of the tissues in there, because antibiotics didn't help with that. I hope you get better. Try to think positive - as I think we all have been trying to do. I haven't been at this forum long either, just found it when I was desparate for help.
Also, I think what is going on in your environment is just as important as what is happening in regards to your health care management choices. You could be exercising five days a week, eating right and taking the right balance of vitamins and medications, but if you have a stressful job or a bad relationship at home that you are not managing, your health and your fibromyalgia can definitely flare up.
