Hey Guys. I too get fast heart rate, high blood pressure, elevated sugar and elevated white blood cell count when taking prednisone. When I'm not flaring, I'm fairly healthy, exercising etc.. so this was concerning to me too.
I'm not sure if its for everyone, but I got my medical marijuana card where I live, and I drink a couple drops of THC oil and it seems to lower my heart rate and make me less manic from the prednisone. I was a pot head as a teenager but I haven't (And still don't) smoked marijuana in 15-20 years. This is different for me.. It allows me to relax a little without being stoned. Enough to manage my day and not be crazy from the prednisone.
