i have suffered from depression before and i am on fluoxetine 20mg and have been for the past 3 years, i have had panic attacks since being on the pred and i am currently having palpertations and feeling really depressed.
last time i went to the doctor she said that i should feel great on the steriods but i have never felt like this.
this whole thing started with a neck pain 6 months ago and athough the headaches, blurred vision and jaw pain have gone , the pain in my neck still remains,
i am so confused, i just want to feel better , instead i get up every morning and feel just as bad.
i have read that the adreanal gland is wiped out when on steriods and that this will start up again when i get down to 7.5 mg of pred at the moment i am alternating between 10mg and 15mg,doctors again tomorrow so he may adjust my doses again.
last time i went I asked for the flu jab and athough he was reluctant he gave it to me in the end, apparently if you have been on 20mg of pred or over for over 2 months you are entited to the jab.
