... for 5 days. was not weened off - as when the doctor would give me a burst- and ween the med down. I have had a history of nocturnal seizures- but was under control- ( have associated it with hot flashes/menapause) - When I woke up after seizure was flushed and warm. Now I am done with the prednisone- feel back to myself- with no issues- I believe the dose was too high- and abruptly stopping did not help the situation. the doctors seemed to not pay attention to my concerns. I also take Warfarin, Carvedilol- Amoxicillin - as well as Kepra on a daily basis. I firmly believe the prednisone was the issue this time.
