Reviews for Prednisone to treat Sinusitis
"Doesn't work. On top of all that I had to deal with the nasty side effects. The only thing that works for chronic sinusitis is surgery"

"I have allergies and get 1-2 sinus infections a year that last for about 6 weeks if untreated. After back to back infections my doctor prescribed prednisone with a six day taper off and a z pack. I noticed immediate relief after just a few hours. The pressure and tightness in my sinuses was gone and all the infected mucus started coming out. I was better within a few days.I haven’t had any reactions actually it has had a relaxing effect."

"Suffered from chronic sinusitis for over a year. Couldn't breath through my nose and daily headaches, brain fog and congestion plagued my life. Numerous antibiotics didn't work. Got given 5 days of this tablet (30mg) and within hours it works. The swelling reduced, I could breath and my sinuses cleared in 3 days! The downside is it sent my anxiety through the roof and I didn't sleep for a week but after a year of chronic sinus problems it was nothing!! Try it :)"

"Went to the Little Clinic in Fry's. I went in with severe sinus pressure. I hadn't had any fever or body ache's so they prescribed me Prednisone 30mg once a day for 5 days. I did feeling anxious, but it only lasted about an hour. They also prescribed Advil & Sinus and Mucinex. Within an hour and a half of taking the first dose, I felt releif. It has been a 8 days since I finished my last does the sinus pressure did not return, but I have post nasal drip which is causing a sore throat and coughing. This is my first time taking Prednisone. For the most part, it did its job."

"doctor gave this as antibiotic for a sinus infection 20mg once day for 10 days. First couple days of taking it, started having severe dissociation and racing thoughts, anxiety went up to an all time high. ( I've been diagnosed with bipolar disorder/ anxiety since I was 6) started to develop depression so bad that I couldn't think or even go to work, suffered from intense panic attacks, all the while not realizing what was causing me all these problems. I thought I was going mentally insane until on the 6th day of taking this hell drug, I then googled searched the side effects and realized what had been causing my horrible mental breakdown. Immediately stopped taking it and after two days (and two charcoal detoxes) I feel somewhat normal."

"Got prescribed this with an antibiotic for sinusitis. Felt better the first day but as i continued the meds, i noticed severe anxiety, moodiness and sweating.my brother also says ive been talking excessively, so the racing mind is probably a side effect. I have 5 more days to go with the prednisone. The prescription was for 10 days."

"I have very frequent bouts of sinusitis with general associated dizziness. Over the last 2 years I've had way too many scripts for Antibiotics (which eventually didn't work anymore) so the doc has occasionally suggested Prednisolone. Did this in December and after a few days all good! Right now in June I'm in trouble again so again on the Pred and tapering down over a week, but I avoid it at night cos it keeps me awake. I'm feeling almost alive again today. Hopefully I'll be out of the woods again soon!"

"I have had back to back sinus infections several times per year for the past few years. I have taken too many antibiotics and do the ENT prescribed prednisone 30 mg for 3 days then 20 for 2 days then 10 then done. Sounded simple enough even though I had been putting off prednisone for a year. I also take klonopin low dose for an anxiety condition. I know my hyper sensitivity to meds so the first night I took half the initial dosage. I woke up early the next morning with a racing mind and high anxiety. The racing mind scared me. It dissipated within a few hours but still made me feel on edge for the remainder of the day. I called the pharmacist as it was a weekend and I could not get the doctor and explain. She told me to stop the prednisone"

"I had a rally bad sinus infection in 2014. Went to Doctor and was put on a antibiotic and prednisone 20 mg. I felt better in one day. This past week had another one went to same place and was put on same meds. Felt great in one day. So I think prednisone is a great Med to give."

"I have severe allergies, combined with chronic sinus and ear troubles. Every few months, I need prednisone to help with inflammation. It kicks in so quickly, and that familiar, dull ache finally subsides. With the taper pack, the side effects are minimal, but the most notable are an increased appetite and energy level. Thankfully, the two of these together seem to balance out, and I usually don't gain weight."

Deltasone (prednisone): "It it one of the only things that opens up the sinuses to allow it to drain well, so the infection can heal otherwise the infection never clears out and you can get a clogged up sinus canal."

"I've been taking this on and off for a few months now (but taking as prescribed) for chronic and severe sinus infections. I recently had surgery for it and am still taking it. I am honestly hoping to be off it soon. I have noticed several side effects - I can't sleep well but always feel tired and without energy; I'm moody; excessive sweating with a horrible breakout or rash over my chest, shoulders and back; my skin is dry and my face looks fuller. "
