My son takes it for hives he has had all summer and I think it is effecting his behavior. He has violent outburst and I feel its getting worse.
Prednisone, long term use, does create emotional changes such as increased anger and sensitivity to others words and actions. This needs to be reported to the doctor as this can be treated.
Tapering from prednisone is a very slow and careful process and needs to be monitored by a physician. Stopping suddenly or some other plan can cause many serious side effects. Withdrawal is dangerous if done quickly.
what type of physician is treating your son? Such long term hives has been identified with what? Wishing him wellness. Karen
