You could say I feel the same way... been crying for days now but I really think its the prednisone bc I never cried before. Normally I am very much a suck it up and deal with it person.
I was on vacation in December 2008 and as soon as I came home I've been sick ever since. I have colitis but they dont know why even after 2 colonoscopies, 2 CT scans, 2 ER visits and 2 gastroenterologists. I had horrible side affects from every drug they gave me including prednisone, which had severe side affects: cant walk, severe joint pain, stomach pain and to top it off I'm crazy now. They gave me prednisone bc they don't know what else to do. So several thousand dollars later and I feel worse with no diagnosis.
Anyway just wanted to vent with you. I feel your pain.
about the drink... I found it best to refrigerate, i didnt add all the water, bc you will have to drink it all, fill it up almost to the line, and chug it as fast as you can. I never added anything else just used the flavoring they had.
