I had been given the dose pack and took the 2 before breakfast, 1 after lunch, 1 after dinner and 2 at bed and then the tapering down, on day 3 on my take 1 before breakfast I started having continous palpitations. I stopped taking them and went to the dr who says it was the steroids. However it's been about 33 hours since I last took my last pill. When will these palpitations stop? I am aware it was a large dose. I am also a 175 pound woman.
