I wondered if anyone has noticed their child becoming confused when they are on oral prednisolone. My daughter is 8 and has had seven days of a 10 day course of 40mg per day, this is not the first time she has had them. However at 6pm tonight she started to seem confused, she was very tired as she woke with an asthma attack at 4.45am this morning. She hasn't got a headache, rash or any other symptoms, although she has been complaining of feeling dizzy the last few days, worse when she is hungry & better when she has eaten. I have reassured her and she has now settled and gone to sleep. She is desperate to go to school in the morning but my gut feeling is not to give the next dose of prednisolone until I have spoken to a GP. Any advice would be very welcome.
