I was wondering if someone could give me some advice. I have never had steroid tablets before but I was prescribed them after an asthma attack recently. I can usually control my asthsma with the ventolin inhaler which I use every now and again but after many days taking two puffs evey 4 hours the symptoms were not releived.
I have been taking 8 tablets of prednisolone 5mg every morning with breakfast for two days and on the third day I had only 2 tablets with breakfast - I was in tears had heart palpitations and dizziness. I called the doctor on the third day after taking only two tablets as I didnt want to take them anymore so now I am on nothing not even my ventolin inhaler as asthma is better.
Does anyone know when the side effects of this drug wear off as I only had the pills for no more than 3 days and I feel very nervious and panic attacks?
