Just wondered what side effects had been encountered by anyone who has taken Prednisolone/Steroids in treating their ITP ?
I have thankfully been free of all medication since September 2010 following successful Rituximab treatment.
I had Prednisolone on and off for 4 years and for me the main side effects were.........
Head aches, waking up in the wee small hours, weight gain, increased bllod pressure, bloating of face, mood swings, heart burn, generally poor digestion, a constant need to eat.
These were the things that steroids resulted in for me, so just wondered what other people had experienced?
Taking steroids lead me to think... " The drugs don`t work they just make it worse", but would be interested to hear what others have experienced.
