Prednisolone Side Effects

Hi all,

I recently had a severe flare up of ulcerative colitis and was on a hydrocortisone steroid shots for a week in hospital. I've now been sent home on 40mg Prednisolone a day and I'm having horrid side effects of shaking and lethargy. I called my GP yesterday to make sure these side effects are normal and apparently they are not so I am seeing them today for a check up.

I wondered if anyone else had experienced these side effects on Prednisolone and if you took any supplements to help.

Thank you

just wondering if you meant to post this in the PAS forum - note that you are also a member of the Crohn's and Colitis support, so wondering if you meant to post there


Hi Gambit, I thought I'd posted on all sights but thank you for letting me know, I will repost Jo x


There isn't a way of posting on multiple sites simultaneous - one protection against site-wide spamming. You need to actually repeat the post on all sites.
