I began taking Pred Forte 3 days before each of my cataract surgeries, one was on July 5, the other on July 12. It seems like since that time I have not felt well... and just prone to 'feeling sick'... weak, more probs with bowels. I told the opthamoligist surgeon this but he just sort of blew it off. Have you ever heard any similar stories to this one? THANK YOU
Pred Forte usually does not cause systemic effects. It could just be coincidental that you have been feeling bad at this time. Have you spoken to your PCP about how you are feeling? I would recommend you see your primary care physician for evaluation. The only other thing is that sometimes, when some peoples vision is off or blurred, it can cause them to feel sick. The period when you have the first eye done and the other eye is still bad can really throw your vision off and this can make some people who are sesitive to this feel poorly. If this is the case, feeling poorly should subside once the eyes are fully healed (about 4 weeks after sugery) and once you get a new eyeglass Rx if you need one.
Havent' heard of these symptoms but we are all connected. I am wondering too if it is nerves that is causing upset stomach, etc.. I wonder have you been taking anything else new in the way of medicine that would cause these symptoms? For example; pain medication, etc... Just a thought, I am no expert. know that can affect me... I believe that some of my sinus problems and earaches were caused by long term use of the Pred Mild drops... I had a terrible time getting off these drops and was on them wayyyyyyyyy too long of a period... long term side affects not good but after trying a few times to slowly wean off them I can now say that it is day 24 and hope I never go back on any type of steriod drops. If you are really concerned see your family doctor and discuss if it continues.
