Prednisone withdrawal in dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Prednisone withdrawal in dogs


Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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...
Avatar f tn However, it is still a new drug and there is no generic form available (for another few years). Both these drugs, in high doses, are difficult to stop. They have withdrawal symptoms that some find worse than opioids, so be forewarned is to be forearmed -- wean slowly if the medication is discontinued. Insist upon it -- no more than 10% per month. Gabapentin and pregabalin are known as GABA analogues and treat neuropathic pain, that is, chronic pain or the pain of a compressed nerve.
Avatar m tn 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.

Avatar m tn I also love bringing my dogs to the beach. I've been afraid to attempt to walk in the sand this week as I am so week but I live next to a pond so I've been walking there and at a nearby conservation area. Re fevers....I use a digital thermometer and the readings always respond to how I am feeling. I'm 47. Would have agreed with hormones but thus has been going on since around 2002 or before. And they always flare when I do too much or with an assault on my body (like going off meds).
Avatar n tn Here's the symptom list I wrote down for my endocrinologist when I first saw him in March this year...
Avatar m tn 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.
596485 tn?1253825278 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.
797873 tn?1265740119 Mine is little different because where ever I am at this smell stays in, my room , at work and in my car.. and the smell changes all the time it depends what I eat. I also get thursty If I dont drink water. I start to get a dry throat and mouth... If i drink anything else that is not water my breath gets worse.. please help!
Avatar n tn 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.
1932256 tn?1327949940 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!!!!
Avatar n tn 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!
Avatar n tn 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.
748543 tn?1463449675 TMJ' as it is wrongly called by many) is easy to treat and self-manage or that it may all be in the patient's mind. The sources in the article stated that, "TMJ problems were originally thought to be caused by dental Malocclusion but that this was an infrequent cause of the problem". The American Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), an organization of some 40,000 of the nation's leading dentist, recognizes the relationship between maloclussion and headaches.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn My suspects of where they come from, bringing compost in the house, pets having mites, dogs cats and reptiles. Rats, either killed by my dogs, or brought in for food for the reptiles. Wood or moss, gathered in the wild to put in house plants.
356518 tn?1322267242 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.
Avatar n tn 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).
Avatar f tn 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
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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...
