I have been on prednisone since June to reduce a mass in my lung. I'm tapering off now, 17.5 mg. I notice that in the afternoon, the same time each day I get very nauseated and am very irritable... angry. I also feel like i could jump out of my own skin, its more of a physical feeling, hard to describe. Has anyone else gone through this? Any words of encouragement? I'm not typically an irritable person, its really bad
