Headaches and prednisone?
Was just started on Prednisone about 3 weeks ago and have been having these debillatating headaches that just hurt; never had these before and it coincides with my starting to decrease my steroid daily use.  I have adrenal insufficiency so I have to live with this the rest of my life.  Any answers to see if headaches are related?

Hello,

Headches is a common side effect of prednisolone.But it is also important to get your blood pressure evaluated.Steroids often cause high blood pressure which may cause severe headaches as its symptom.Also discuss the option of shifting to some low potency steroid with your doctor.If even after tapering the dose or changing the medicine,headaches persist then other causes like tension headache,migraine,neurological causes have to be ruled out.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted.
