Hi, lovely people,
I have a question regarding depression on Prednisolone reduction. It is unbelievable the difference from taking 10mg on which I felt well, happy and content, I reduced to 9mg for 5 weeks and felt a little less well but okay. I have now again (third attempt) reduced to 8mg, and my mood has plummeted dramatically, I am totally lethargic, really depressed, snappy, and basically horrible! I am finding it really hard to function, staying in bed and over sleeping. I have some pain in my hips, legs and shoulders but it is bearable. I could understand if I was in terrible pain but I'm not really, I am just so depressed. I have been taking 90mg Fluoxetine for 8 years and 40mg of Amitriptyline for the last 6 months. Every time I have reduced the Prednisolone below 9mg I have felt horrendous. Any one else had this problem with depression?
