 1  Rash Depression, mood swings, extreme anxiety, onset of panic attacks, shortness of breath, dry mouth, frequent thirst, nausea, dizziness, high blood pressure, racing heart, muscle spasms, cramping, pressure in head and ears, extreme fatigue, confusion, brain fog, sensitivity to light, easily overstimulated, headaches, having to eat smaller meals and drink tons of water throughout day even 2 mos later. Pleasure of life has dissipated. Would strongly suggest this drug be banned as it is dangerous.

 1  Temporal ateritis After taking 5 pills, I became extremely anxious, horrible sweating, wet hair, neck itching and broke out in hives. Blood pressure and heart rate through the roof. Dr said allergy don't ever take again. Bowels have been wrecked and still itching after stopping. Wish I'd never taken it. Turns out I didnt have temporal arteritis. F 73 2 days

 4  Autoimmune condition Took high dose 50 mg daily for a year until immune suppressor kicked in, then tapered for a year. Pretty much textbook as expected side effects; no sleep, moon face, swelling, glaucoma, grew a mustache lol. But I was mobile and functioning and did not die which actually came close when my illness began. Tapering was a nightmare, every month nausea, fatigue, flaring symptoms. Start to feel better, reduce dose again. Blegh. Glad to be off it but it does it's job well. F 38 2 years

 1  Bursitis/osteoarthritis in knee Headache, stomach ache, loss of appetite, restlessness, anxiety, depression, crying spells and inability to function or work due to general feeling of malaise. After just one pill, I immediately regretted it. Iíve never felt this horrible in my life. Aside from the physical side effects, the psychological ones were 1000x worse. I would never recommend anyone taking this drug! All this happened to me in one day! I have GAD with a family history of irregular heartbeat and canít believe my doctor would prescribe this!

 2  Cellulitis with antibiotic Woke up first night with heart pounding, pulse 82- usually 65-70 during the day. Slept 2 1/2 hours that night. Through the 5 days my resting heart rate was 75-85. It's never so high. If you take this daily you must do so by 9 AM or you will most likely not sleep well. If you have high or even borderline blood pressure or glucose make sure you take a low dose or find an alternative. I had a friend whose glucose went up to 700 because idiot doctor prescribed a dose knowing he had diabetes with no insulin adjustment. This is not a drug to play with! M 69 5 days

 1  Hearing loss A vascular Necrosis, Tendonitis, Glaucoma, Sacriolitis, Osteoporosis, Osteopenia I was a very healthy individual until I started experiencing severe sudden hearing loss. The only treatment by ENTs is Prednisone. After taking it for 3 years on and off, I ended up with avasular necrosis in my hip and needed a hip replacement. I also now have blurry vision from glaucoma - my eyes had been improving before this. I also have osteoporosis and osteopenia. Donít take this drug unless all other options have been explored. After 3 years it took ME going to an allergist to find out my hearing loss was caused by a combination of allergies. I also have an upper cervical misalignment (which does not allow drainage of my Eustachian tube). ENTs are prescribing this stuff like candy. F 60 60 days

 1  TMJ made my chest burn like crazy, can't sleep. Sweating in my sleep no matter how much A.C is blast on me. Very very angry move swings. I took one pill of 20mg at 12:45pm and haven't took any more and still feel the side affects the next day at 2:45. I recommend no babies or toddlers around you while on this drug, cause they will make you worse and possibly make you hurt them without you thinking of your wrong, this drug is the devil himself at work.

PREDNISONE  (PREDNISONE):  Prednisone is used to treat conditions such as arthritis, blood disorders, breathing problems, severe allergies, skin diseases, cancer, eye problems, and immune system disorders. Prednisone belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. It decreases your immune system's response to various diseases to reduce symptoms such as swelling and allergic-type reactions.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
