been on 50mg of prednisolone for 4 weeks now and 2 to go before i taper down.
lots of side effects for me. NO moonface...
i have insomnia
im moody and quick to anger, quick to sadness, quick to all over the place with my emotions
i feel like crap all day
i get shaky in the hands
brain fog sometimes.. like im in a bubble
my tastebuds are just plain OFF... nothing tastes right. everything is just that little bit not right. its weird...
no weight gain
my skin is all cleared up and looks good (i used to have psoriasis, but not at the moment - it went away)
my fingernails have thinned out and break and bend easy
my joints are starting to hurt a bit
general feeling of unwell during day
its like im writing a book.. i know. but i hate this prednisone and i can't wait to get off of it.
but i do feel like its doing its job for my colitis, so i am just dealing with it the best i can!
and hopefully not being too much of a snapping turtle to my husband!
