Yes, it is. Dizziness is a common side effect of steroids. Prednisone is a powerful steroid that changes a lot of the ways your body functions, so side effects are very common and can last awhile after being treated. Steroids are stored in the fat cells of your body so it can take some time for them to completely leave your body. A doctor may not tell you this but I have it on good authority from a certified herbalist. It can take a long time to stop having the side effects as it takes a long time for those fat cells to release. Drink lots of water (100 ounces a day minimum) exercise - get your body moving and reduce the fat in your diet so your body has to use the fat that is stored. Best wishes to you that you will be feeling better soon.
