Any advice please? I got started on prednisolone last Tuesday (13days ago) at 40mg for 10 days by my GP as I had a stinking cold and pf was below 70%.
Anyway things got worse to the point where I was admitted to hospital on Monday. Other GP thought I had sepsis and pf was at 230 (normally 470) I wasn't that bad but kept in 3 nights. Let out on Thursday (which was supposed to be the last day of the prednisolone) with a reducing dose which is going to take me 3 more weeks to get off.
I'm quite desperate. I react badly to prednisolone after the 2 weeks mark. Side effects become intolerable. It affects my state of mind. I want to rip people's heads off and then burst jbto tears. I don't sleep and I get agonising cramp in my hands and feet. I have previously been on antidepressants so it's contraindicated anyway.
No chance of speaking to my preferred GP before Wednesday and yesterday the steroids side effects started rearing their head. I charged off for a 3 mile walk despite just getting out of hospital on Thursday. Pf is back in the well zone and I'm down to 30mg but I'm scared. Pf went down again after all that charging about and I got quite wheezy in the evening so I sort of need the steroids but I really am not me.
If I get past 2 weeks on them I know from once before that it will be horrendous. I'm also scared of just stopping as I did that once at 2 weeks and an ambulance was called out. That was dangerous too.
What can I do?
