keep me in your prayers
just wanting my forum buds to keep me in their prayers. i have been struck with Bells Palsy again. it paralizes half of your face and is quite annoying. it can be painful but not to bad so far. my question is about the prednisone they put me on. it makes me feel kinda antsy and wired. i know it is a steroid and was just wondering if anyone has had experience with it. i've heard it can be additive, they have me on a slow taper. thanks for any feed back. God Bless... christina

I too am so sorry to hear this and will certainly keep you in my prayers.  Sorry I cannot offer any information on predisone.  Ive taken it before for asthma issues when I was young but dont recall any side effects either.  I believe its a steroid and have heard it should be avoided for long term use.  I would suggest talking to your doctor... It may be the benefit outweighs the side effects.  Best of luck and hang in there..

My son takes it often for asthma and eczema. They do taper him off also but the only side effects we notice are puffy face, and a little hyper. Sorry to hear you are ill. Take care.

Sorry about the Bells Palsy. You say you have it "again", how many times have you had it? I had Bells Palsy for about 3 months when I was pregnant with my son, but wasn't given anything to treat it. They said it might go away or go away a little or not at all. But I made a complete recovery right after my son was delivered. Do they say why you are getting this? Sorry I have no great knowledge about the prednisone other than my sister's dog has to take it and it makes the dog hungry and pee a lot. I do believe it has to be weaned off of.

I was on it for a disease called ITP, lack of platelets. I dont remember how it made me feel, it was like 20 years ago now. I do remember wieght gain and getting the "Moon face" They say it makes your face look round. I was on crazy doses though.

It will make you eat ALOT.  It will also make you moody.  It also will make you not sleep.  It is an aweful drug IMHO.  It only masks the symtoms doesn't address the deases.

Prednisone does the EXACT same thing to me.I take it for my back sometimes and it ALWAYS makes me feel that way.I get on this huge emotional roller coaster,but my doctor has told me that it is normal for some people to feel that way while on it.I hope this helps.Good luck to you....Peace...Kim
