 2  after cataract surgery Runny nose , flu like symptoms, depressed , no energy I thought I had covid but its negative, I felt that sick for a month. I finally realized the drops could be an issue. They go right down my throat and then I start coughing , I'm using tissues all the time and I'm sleeping a lot. I taper down this week so I'll see what happens. F 71 30 days

 3  Aftercare cataract surgery UGH. They love to say this is not absorbed systemically, but it rolls down your tear duct, and from there down your throat. Same side effects as oral steroids--felt moody, aggressive, depressed, can't sleep, agitated, joint pain. I'm reducing the dosage, instead of 4x a day, do 3x a day, then the next week, instead of 3x a day, 2x a day, etc. Because I cannot continue on like this indefinitely. F 62 21 days

 1   Cushingoid symptoms, weight gain Used this long-term at high doses, then tapered. Was told this could not be absorbed systemically. However there are a few case reports in the literature of systemic effects, and I appear to be another. Based on moon facies, Cushingoid appearance, geneticist took me off the med and advised me not to use it in the future. 20 years

 3  after eye surgery Mild stinging in eye; unpleasant bitter taste drips down into back of mouth; ears ringing; probabably also related to cold/allergy symptoms (scratcy throat, congestion, post-nasal drip). I don't know what would happen if I didn't use this after DSEK surgery - maybe nothing, or maybe the graft would have failed by now. I am also using Xibrom anti-inflammatory. I will stop the Xibrom soon but unfortunately I'm supposed to use the Pred Forte indefinitely, eventually at 1 drop per day. Both of these can cause worse problems than I have so far. M 66 13 days
