Prednisone gives me insomnia
Post a Reply
I was prescribed prednisone 50mg for 5 days on 01/24/2016. I took it for the two first days and the result was insomnia. Spent 48 hours straight awake. Couldn't sleep not even a couple of hours. Third day I didn't take it and called the doctor. They said I should take it the following morning and continue every morning until finish it. They didn't help me with the fact that I wouldn't be able to sleep again. Today is jan 27th I still have 3 more pills to take. I took only half of the pill this morning and my plan is to take half a pill every morning until I'm done. Will I be ok?

Can taking pulmison and celestemine during early pregnancy affect the baby? ## Hello, LisaE! How are you? Congratulations on the baby! :-) No, these should not be taken during pregnancy, due to the corticosteroids that are in them, Prednisone and Betamethasone, both have been classified by the FDA as being in pregnancy category C, because they've been unable to rule out there being any risk. The FDA lists their typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, acne, irritability and insomnia. If you need to take something for allergy symptoms, it would be best to speak to your doctor to find out what is safe for you. Is there anything else I can help with?

It is jan3016 I have 10mg prednisone expiration date may 2015 is it safe fore to use? ## Hello, Lillian! How are you? Actually, I think after over 1,000 years, it has likely lost most of its usefulness. LOL! Sorry, I couldn't resist the joke, typos are so much fun. :-) Either way though, medications do lose efficacy with age, so it would actually be best to dispose of it and see your doctor for a new prescription, if one is needed. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness and insomnia. Is there anything else I can help with?

I am a 64 yr. old woman with severe rheumatoid arthritis & damage in my spine including stenosis in two areas of my spine-neck & lower back. Most doctors are unwilling to prescribe pain medication that will relieve my pain. Would appreciate names of doctors who can help me. ## Well, you aren't going to have any choice but to go through pain management, due to the new laws. They make it so that a general practitioner, or surgeon will only be able to prescribe pain medications for short-term use, such as for a couple of weeks immediately after someone has had surgery or been in an accident. Learn more pain management details here. In reality, most general doctors really aren't comfortable prescribing such medications, because they aren't trained in how to actually hand...
