Starting 5 mg Prednisolone With 100 mcg Levothyroxine

After starting Prednisolone I felt my body very hot like levothyroxine suddenly started to work! Is there any explanation to this phenomena? I stopped Prednisolone because I felt also very weak on it. I will try it at another time after understanding little bit more about it. My doctor prescribe it to me, I have dysfunction pituitary with low TSH and possible impairment in ACTH.

Possible side effects should be listed on the patient information leaflet included with your medication. Steroids should not be stopped and started at will. If you have low adrenal function it will get worse without steroids.


Hi Clutter,

I didn't find this side effect on leaflet and I have taken 5mg only twice before I stop.
