Hi to all!!! Its been a while since I have posted. I just have a quick question. I was hopitalized about 2 weeks ago for severe intestinal bleeding due to a flare. I was on high doses of IV meds and was discharged on 50mg of Pred and was supposed to taper down every 3 days. I got down to 30 and started having problems so my GI said stay at 30 and come see him Friday. But ever since I have started taking it I have noticed that my sweat has a new odor. I shower like normal...everyday. Use the same soap same deoderant. same everthing. But my sweat smells kinda like prednisone tastes. I drink PLENTY of water so naturally I have been sweating more and in more places like my arms and legs. I just dont know if the odor could be due to the Prednisone or what? I have been on Pred before but I dont remember if this happened then. Anyone ever heard of this????

Honestly...can't go in the garden 30 minutes after taking the stuff (especially doses greater than 10 mgs)...those bees will attack! I also agree, there is a distinct odor while using this stuff...used to be able to wear a nightgown for more than one night, but on prednisone, it is a one nighter only...

Prednisone, the drug you love (as what John has said), the drug you hate(those pesky little side effects). Here's hoping to see my own face in the mirror soon!

I also had weird smelling sweat while I was on a high dose.  No one else seemed to notice though....I though it was VERY obvious and strong.
