I became extrememly anxious and jittery and ended up with a perscription for an anti anxiety called Ativan. It helps. I am now detoxed from the Prednizone for 3 weeks but still taking the Ativan and stil have all the side effects including muscle ache, moon face, huge stomach, headaches, muscle weakness - anemia, cramps from lack of potassium, irritability, weight and water gain, incessent appetite -- if its a side effect, I am experiencing it. My big question is how long until I get this stuff out of my system and get my body back to normal. Anyway way to speed up the process?
I had to take it in the hospital twice for pneumonia due to breathing problems, I was in a coma, septic shock, a ventilator, pulmonary embolisms, and another round of pneumonia over a period of 2 months. 3 hospitalizations and three times steriods. Each time the side effects became more pronounced and serious. Now I'm just trying to recover from the side effects. Anyone had or has a similar situation and any idea about time frames for feeling better, and swelling going down; strength returning; aching going away?
