... (60 mg for 5 days and a 10mg/taper for another 5 until I was off) I had terrible side effects. Anxiety, headaches, head/eye pressure, a whirly dizzy feeling, increased appetite, high blood pressure. I have been off the prednisone now for about 6 weeks and although many of my symtoms have subsided I still have bad anxiety & eye/head pressure and increasing dryness/soreness in my eyes. I am starting to feel depressed because it has been so long now since I just felt like myself. Has anyone ever experience anything similar? Would love to hear any feedback. Thank you
