I know a lot of people have somewhat strange reactions to steroids. I typically become very moody (borderline bi-polar) and I get insomnia. I think it's just one of those things you have to get used to and deal with it appropriately.

Pimfram is right, the steroids can really cause people emotional issues. I would talk to your doc about it. Hugs!

The tramadol and xanax can also cause changes in mood. I think you need to call your doctor and let him/her know what is going on.
