Prednisone causing anxiety


It’s been awhile since I last post as everything has been going well until just recently. I have been having left side headaches with pressure and pain behind my eye.

It’s been going on awhile and decided to see my gp about it. Well she thought it might be Temporal Arteritis and put me on 60mg of prednisone. I took 40mg last Thursday and 60mg Friday, Saturday,Sunday. Spoke to my gp yesterday and she told me to stop taking it since it wasn’t helping. I did not take any yesterday and last night I had a panick attack! I have felt anxious,jittery, and have diarrhea all day. My question is has anyone else experienced this after discontinuing prednisone and how long will it last. I should have never started it😢
