So I am still in my first week of prednisone. Today is my first day coming down to 40mg and I was wondering if you could start having mental confusion this soon? I had an episode tonight where I left my phone and wallet in the store...left, noticed it was gone but couldn't really remember where I was and how to get there. It took me awhile to get it together and get back to my stuff. By that time I was very upset and I have never had any kind of panic attack before but I'm thinking maybe I did tonight. Just wondering if someone has went through this so soon after starting prednisone or any advice to what it is. Thanks!
