Only been taking prednisolone for 5 days at 7.5mg and had to taper down to 5mg yesterday. The side effects I’m having are awful, it’s made the things I need better much worse, I’m in pain! This drug does not agree with me and I want off. Waiting for the rhuem nurse to get back to me but I just want to stop taking this now. My eyes are so bad and painful I’m writing this as quick as poss, I feel dizzy, my head isn’t as clear, it’s setting off migraines, basically all the things I’m struggling with and don’t want with no benefit whatsoever. Has anyone else experienced this on Pred? I know it’s such a wonder drug for most but it does not ageee with me at all. Really think it will do more damage than good. I’m not anti medicine but I don’t agree with taking things that make your problems worse, it’s counter productive. Does anyone know how long these effects will last if I stop and I’ve only been on 7.5mg 4 days, 5mg 1 day?
