I have had asthma all my life, and came off my inhaler 10 years ago. Yesterday, I saw the doctor for asthma, and he put me back on an inhaler (Albuterol, 2 puffs every 4 hours), as well as Prednisone 15mg/twice per day.
I am also taking Concerta 54mg, Lexapro 20mg, Claritin, Singulair 10mg, Flonase, and Meloxicam 15mg (though I did not take this yesterday). Last night, after 3 doses of the Albuterol and 1 Prednisone, I had an anxiety attack, which, while it does happen occasionally, I was feeling paranoid and anxious for several hours prior, which is unusual (the paranoia and anxiety typically take a maximum of 2 hours before triggering the attack; this was more like 6).
Question is, can these drugs cause this? I see depression and mood changes under prednisone, but I've been on it before (I think it was 10mg, though), without noticing this (though I was pretty sick at the time and in a fog). Should I go to the doctor again today to talk about it?
