I was prescribed this medication (50mg) 1pill a day for 3 days and after 8 days I find my vision becoming blury once in a while and the depression such as mood swings have been increasing. I never take or took any medication prior to this and I will never do it again. I knew nothing about prednisone and would not recommend it for anyone.

DO NOT take prednisone. When i was on a 10 day supply my rt eye crossed and i have lost a substantil amout of my vision. It was 20/20 and now im waiting on a surgery to set the eyeballs back in the sockets and to straighten the rt eye but the doc says theres no fixing my vision loss this is just a cosmetic fix. I advise you to avoid this med at all cost if you want to save your vision,that is if the damage is not already there. Also research before you do every thing the doc tells you. Its hard to find the info you seek too but diligently research before risking further damage to yourself. Good luck! The rest is up to you.

Prednisone is a corticosteroid that is frequently used to treat inflammation in various areas of the body, thus it is best to take it, as directed, and see if it helps.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, acne, weight gain, fluid retention, and mood changes.

Is there anything I can help with?
