My husband died in our living room and I called 911. He was revived after they broke 3 ribs and had a major surgery and was hospitalized for weeks. When I panic I get short of breath. After Bill (husband) was taken to the hospital I had a panic attack and couldn't breathe. I called 911 and ended up in the hospital myself. At no time did anyone ask me about my history, what happened or anything. They just began giving me Prednisone. I had no idea what it was and took it. The take-down dose when I left the hospital was 20 mgms. three times a day for a certain period, then 10 mgms for another period and now I am down to 5 mgms per day and have been taking it for over a year.

I felt dizzy,dr said i have excess fluid behind right ear. i was given prednisone. next morning, i cant walk, no balance. have to hold on to something to walk. talked to dr, she say this is normal. is it? ## Your doctor should have told you that you had vertigo and that prednisone can sometimes help. The side effects you were experiencing are created by vertigo, which can be quite nasty. Your equilibrium is messed up, you go one way and your body goes the other way.

Anyone else go through this and did it get better after that time? I need advice ## I, too, had insomnia after taking the Prednisone. Anxiety has increased tenfold. My husband is a love and he takes good care of me. He understands and sometimes when I get carried away he just smiles and says, Prednisone and I know the medication is causing the problem. I hope that things get better for your mom. Just try to remind her in a nice way that the Prednisone is causing her feelings and that she really is OK. Being patient with her will help more than anything I think and if she is receptive to the idea ... ...

Is there a non-script replacement for Prednisone. This may sound really dumb, but we have a dog with big time alergies and the only thing that will help him is Prednisone.

The dog is 14 years old and nothing else helps with the alergies. ## Prednisone is a corticosteroid and as such is available by prescription only, as are all the alternatives. ...

I have taken the 48 pac of prednisone before and it was a graduated dosage by the cards they were on - the prescription I received today was in a bottle and did not have any instructions on how to take them like the ones in the pac.
