The only time I felt like I was truly going nuts was when I was on the higher doses of prednisone. However, I've also had "weird" physical reactions to some of the other drugs like Imuran and Asacol. I had side effects from both of those drugs that were not on the list of side effects the doctors had given me, and I knew the drugs were causing them because the second I went off of them the side effects disappeared. Sometimes certain people have more sensitive bodies than the norm and stuff like this can happen.
