well, im not sure whats going on.. (what's new right?)
i started tapering my prednisone dosage today down to 40mg from 50mg. for 5 days then i go down by 10mg again.. every 5 days till done.
well, today i have had the shakes like you wouldnt believe.
im shaking now. i look like i have parkinsons.
i feel all frazzled and sleepy at same time.
i did take a new sleeping pill last night for my pred induced insomnia and it left me feeling drowsy and tired all day today.
its an over the counter anti-histamine based sleeping pill.
i cant feel like this all day. zombie like and totally out of it.
(which isnt mixing well with the opposite feeling that the pred is giving me)
so ive got this tired feeling at the same time as wired and shaky from the pred.
is it the tapering of the prednisone that is making me feel like this?
does anyone else have this problem?
(can i have some fries with that shake?)
