Curious about the side effects you all have had from predisone. I'll tell ya mine... then if ya all will fill me in on yours and your thoughts on mine....??
Number 1 side effect.... I actually lose weight. about 1-2 pounds a week. I think its the insomnia and extra energy I get from this stuff. Just noticed today.... am gettin a puffy face. but still no weight gain.
Number 2... starved all the time.
Number 3... stretch marks on my bely that were never there.... From swelling and puffyness I miised?
Number 4.... and don't laugh... Lack of sex drive? HAve always been a very sexual person, and now it seems I have no drive. Not that it doesn't interest me or that me stuff don't work.... Just have No drive to pursue it. Is this normal?
Number 5.... insomnia?
Number 6... and this is a "good" one. I actually don't hurt anymore. I used to suffer gout, and bad Arthitis. seems to be totatlly gone on this drug.
Please let me know about your side effects and your thoughts on mine..... Like I have said in other posts, am still in my intial flare ( 14+ months ) (feel I'm gettin better though ) And just tryin to learn how to live and cope with this horrid disease.
