I realise I am late in replying to Prednisolone side affects but I am not so lucky as some. I started on 40mgs 6.5 years ago and have progressed down to 5mgs.
I had a couple of long-lasting panic attacks when on the high dose (first time ever) and also an hallucination with respect to a dreaded spider. My hair is combed out of my head daily but appears on my face like never before. I have the 'brain fog' others talk about, my stomach is distended and my GP said airily "oh that'll be the steroids". Worst of all, to me, is the long-lasting deep purple blotches appearing on my arms and now, to a lesser extent on my face and legs. I also have various 'eruptions' on my face which are also put down to the steroids by my rarely seen Rheumy.
Worst of all is the tissue-paper-like quality of my forearm/hands skin. It tears at the slightest knock and I now look like a self-harmer, with all the scars. I have a feeling there are those worse than I am though!
