Substance-induced psychosis

The Real Dangers Of BENZODIAZEPINES (pt.1)

I would not normally be weeping and so horribly depressed about this petty work problem and ruminating about everything in my life that isn't perfect. I heard it takes 4 weeks for it to completely get out of your body. I am told I smacked a nurse, threatened other staff that came into the room, threw myself on the floor, and tried to fight the police officers who finally drove me to another hospital for treatment. It felt as though my throat was closing up on me. I would later find out in counseling that this was most likely due to a negative reaction to the antipsychotics they gave me, which could have been alleviated by giving me just one more type of medication. My skin is starting to itch with no hives present. They gave me Flovent and said that while it has Prednisone in there, that I wouldn't suffer from the anxiety

Personally, I did not like Xanax . I want to post this study, it was very helpful to me, it describes the problem to a T - " steroid psychosis ". Has anyone experienced " steroid psychosis " on Prednisone? I really cracked up this weekend. I am taking Xanax and that seems to take the  Pred taper - anyone get anxiety? - Ulcerative Colitis. Experiencing drug-induced psychosis from an antidepressant or corticosteroid is significantly less likely than an illicit street stimulant. Now here on day 3, my face is red and I feel like I have hot flashes. I seem to get nauseous and shaky and anxious after eating which I can barely do but make myself eat a few bites of of protein and healthy carbs like a diabetic because I thought maybe this was affecting my blood sugar levels and at bed time.

PredniSONE Anxiety Attacks, Mood Swings, Weird Mood, Prednisone, Bad Case Posted over a year ago I was prescribed the testosteron hoher blutdruck methylprednisolone pack along with 50 mg tramadol for acute tendinitis in my wrist. I took testosteron tabletten bodybuilding first 3 days of the prednisone and only 2 doses of the tramadol over the three days.

For a total of 60 mg of prednisone. The first day I had muskelaufbau anabole fenster flashes and insomnia but attributed it muskelaufbau doping anabolika the tramadol because I had never taken it before and had taken the prednisone several years ago for poison ivy with no adverse reactions.

I didn't take the tramadol the second night and then took it again last night along with my daily dose of prednisone.

Many providers will say that side effects are rare, but my experience is that side effects are more common than rare. My prayers go out to those of you who are going through what I am going. I hope that it clears our systems quickly because this is no way to live.

I'd rather put up with the pain of tendinitis or carpel tunnel than to have these symptoms.

After lunch I took the next pill and I couldn't sit. I'm naturally hyper and active, but this felt amazing to me and I literally think I'm high. My husband came home from work and asked me a simple question and I screamed my answer to him at the top of my lungs.

He asked exactly like this, "What the hell did you take?!? I asked if he was kidding and he said he first of all I'd never yell at him like that and my face is very flushed and my eyes look crazy. That's what prompted me to google the side effects and found this sight.

Luckily for me I read all your comments and I have Xanax because I already have horrible anxiety attacks and insomnia. Good to know and thanks for sharing! Posted over a year ago - Reply Texasdeedee - Thanks to all of you for your generosity in describing your symptoms.

The last time I took this steroid was twenty years ago and it made me feel great. At 57, I am sitting here past midnight, after not sleeping last night either and can't imagine how I can go to work tomorrow with a long and wild commute and sitting in front of a computer all day. I am on my second day of antibiotics and Methylprednisolone 6 day pack prescribed after my bronchitis with an ear infection of 8 days would not clear up and drain on its.

Sitting here in bed with headphones on watching an old Murder She Wrote in an effort to calm. I feel very distraught about my boss complaining about my getting to work late this morning exhausted, after all my hours of working late have received no compliments.

I would not normally be weeping and so horribly depressed about this petty work problem and ruminating about everything in my life that isn't perfect. Crying like a teenager. I really think it is the prednisone! My heart is pounding, which is anxiety provoking. My husband commented that my cheeks are quite red. To the diabetics out there, you should know before you take the first dose that your blood sugar may increase quite dramatically. And I mean, like from a typical to !

If you are able, prepare to walk more than once a day, eat frequent very lo-carb meals, and test your blood sugar repeatedly. This is hard because you may be ill as I am, dizzy and breathless due to the bronchitis and ear infection. Also I feel like the steroids are making me more hungry and I am craving counter-productive junk like Gardettos and chocolate. Record your blood sugars and call your diabetes educator or nurse for advice on day one.

My questions were whether my long-acting night-time insulin should be increased or whether I should rely on frequent injections of the short-acting insulin. I hesitate to share the advice I got but encourage you to call your endocrinologist. I plan tomorrow to try to do three short walks, use no caffeine, maybe get some melatonin, and take a sleep aid. And just call in sick instead of dragging in late. Since I know I won't be asleep until 3 or so.

And tomorrow night, no Godiva chocolate with all those stimulants! Posted over a year ago - Reply Cloak - Could someone please tell me how long it took to get over the side effects Please?

I think I would have rather had just the pain then what i went through on the medicine. I've had trouble sleeping and go from jittery to sick feeling. The bad thing is it never touched the pain. My last pill was this past Saturday. Final one before breakfast and I pretty much spent the entire weekend relaxing. I've felt sick and weak in my arms and legs. I was fine for the first couple hours of the day and then out of no where the weakness would settle in.

Also feeling very fuzzy and it's hard to think or function. Today is day number 2 of no medicine and I'm sitting at work with the same symptoms. I just want to crawl up in my bed and sleep for a week. I hope these effects ware off soon Posted over a year ago - Reply Mykorat - So sorry most of you have had to go through a horrible ordeal with methylprednisolone, but thank-you for sharing. I don't think I will take it after reading most of these comments. I certainily don't want to end up in the ER.

I'll try to fight my bronchitis with lots of rest, fluid and maybe a Z-pack. Rushed to the emergency room cause it swelled up to a size of a small grape and I almost choked on it! Anyways They took some vials of blood and put me on an IV. Not sure what they shot me with but later on that night my swelling went down and I was released after the Ear, nose and throat Dr checked out everything and gave me an ok and a prescription for 21 tablets of 4 mg Methylprednisolone in a Z-pack.

First time ever taking. So I took the first dose which was 6 pills then next day 5 till it tapered down to 1.

No side effects till the next day! It hit me very hard! All of the sudden it felt like my heart was racing, I was having panic attacks and I never had one in my life! Lost of appetite, depression, the feeling of hopelessness was the worst feeling of all. Not having control of my own body is the a terrible feeling! I couldnt sleep for 48 hours! So I was back at the ER. And it work great! It's been 4 weeks since I took the prednisolone, 3 weeks with the side effects.

I feeling better but sometimes i will take Ativan when I have alittle anxiety but not as much cause I don't want to get addicted to it. I've drank lots of water and starting to feel normal. But this morning I had a big attack and scared my wife. So back to Ativan.

I heard it takes 4 weeks for it to completely get out of your body. I'm on my 3rd week. So hopefully it'll be gone soon. I do feel better everyday but sometimes my anxiety will come back and I have to take my Ativan. This drug did help my problem but I think the Dr. I will pray for all of you and hope you get better soon!!!!

Posted over a year ago - Reply Texasdeedee - Hello, Kimmers If your heart is beating hard, maybe you ought to call your doctor to check on that aspect of your reactions. I did also have that reaction to prednisone, but I don't have any other heart problems. I'm writing to tell you my experience with horrible headaches after having epidural anesthesia during childbirth twenty years ago.

The doctor overshot the epidural space and I had leaking spinal fluid, resulting in overwhelming headaches that made me fear I had suffered brain damage.

I was given a blood patch that did nothing for me. I would liken the experience to having a concussion. The day before delivery, I could quickly add numbers in my head. The day after, I had to use paper and pencil and couldn't remember things.

I had the terrible pounding headaches every time I moved for about eight weeks. Then, for about two years, my head would pound and throb when I stood up. For example, I would stand next to the car holding on to the door for a moment before I started walking.

I did, however, eventually heal. For about ten years, I had headaches periodically, whereas before the delivery, I never had them at all. It has been twenty years now and I do not suffer from headaches or the unusual head pounding any more, even when hiking up a hill. I just wanted to reassure you that you should steadily improve from the spinal tap complications. Ask them about your pounding heart.

Posted over a year ago - Reply Keh48 - Three weeks ago, I experienced what felt like an allergic reaction of my tongue which quickly spread to my throat, hives on my back, arms and chest.

Had to call Was taken to the ER where they gave me a shot of Solumedrol and epinephrine was given 2 50mg doses of Benadryl in the ambulance. Was diagnosed with localized hives and angioedema allergy unknown. Was sent home with once-a-day 40mg Prednisone to be taken for 3 days and told to take Benydryl every 6 hours Started having mild anxiety on day 1 progressingly worse on day 2.

By day 3, the anxiety was so bad I called my PCP and said I couldn't take it anymore. Went into the office and received a steriod injection not sure what but it helped. Put me on Methylprednisone 4mg pack 6 days tapering down each day.

By day 3 on the pack, the anxiety was unbearable. Advice nurse said this was due to the Prednisone and most people "work through it. First day off was pretty good but the next day the anxiety came. By day 3 off Prednisone, suffered the anxiety for about 6 hours then headed to urgent care - had a full blown panic attack in the car and had to be taken into the urgent care by wheelchair.

Urgent care MD stated Prednisone was the reason and prescribed Xanax which really helped. Saw an allergist who said the initial angioedema which took me to the ER was most likely aspirin-induced I take a lot of Excederin Migraine for headaches - loved the product.

No aspirin or NSAIDs for me anymore. Back to my PCP for follow up. She stated the steriods I received affect your hormones and that it could be 6 - 8 weeks before I feel like. I'm off prednisone for 1 weekj, still having slight tongue tingling and bouts of anxiety.

Only taking Benadryl as needed. Wishing to feel like. Anyone with similar experience related to aspirin-induced angioedema, treatment like mine and how long until the tongue tingling goes away completely and no more anxiety?

I am actually laying here trying to get sleep because of all this drama that has happened the past few days. The doctor told us it would take about hours till it is all out of my. I am a healthcare worker and see people with reactions like this but until you go through it you have no idea how bad and intense it is. I seriously feel like I am having a total out of body experience. When I looked at myself in the mirror I did not recognize the person looking back at me.

After spending the day crying, yelling, having panic attacks I am finally starting to feel like maybe I will be calm enough to get some rest. I know I will never take it again and I hope this helps for people that might think they are going crazy. You are not and your not. It's hard to believe that some simple little pills could take over your entire mind and body like.

Posted over a year ago - Reply Florida Gal - I must say I am EXTREMELY happy for this site! I was given a 6 day pack of Prednisone total of 21 pills at 5 mg. It was prescribed when I didn't respond to antibiotics for a severe sinus infection.

I started with headaches, dizziness, anxiety, and complete jitteriness on the second day. I continued with the course, hoping the side effects would lessen. I was happy that the amount decreased each day. However, the side effects did not get better at all. When I took the final does at 5: However, 3 days later and I still can't sleep. My head still feels too small for my brain.

I am still so dizzy I can barely stand up. And the anxiety and jitters are driving me crazy. I am a very emotionally stable person.

I keep waking up feeling like I'm going crazy. I thought about going to the ER, but figured they would just do some bloodwork and give me a pain killer and send me on my way. The last thing I want to do is sit around the ER all day and take more meds. I have been scouring the net, hoping that I'm not going crazy. I found this site and MANY just like it. Apparently Prednisone is not a good med to take! I am just wondering how many days it will be before I feel like myself.

Even now my hands are flying across the keyboard at record speeds and my legs are shaking like crazy. I don't know how many more days I can take. I've drank so much water trying to flush it out of me, but it's being stubborn. I still feel like I'm going crazy. I have never worried about my mental health before, but my emotions have been crazy, ranging from crying, to laughing for no reason, to everything in.

I just want this stuff out of my system and I vow no matter what, I won't take this stuff. I'd rather suffer a severe sinus infection that have this stuff mess with my mind.

Thanks to everyone who posts here who has set my mind at ease that I am not going crazy and that it will get better. Posted over a year ago - Reply Kgm02 - I am right with all of you. Went to the urgent care because of sinus infection, sore throat, and doctor prescribed an antibiotic and the 4mg methylpredisolone taken over 6 days.

The first night I didn't sleep at all and I was hot all night. Last night was a little better, not much, but I did feel like I rested better, not great though, but I was still hot. My wife thought I was crazy because I couldn't have any covers on and wanted the fan on. Now here on day 3, my face is red and I feel like I have hot flashes. I definetly won't be taking this again!
