I have a rare auto-immune disease that requires high (160mg 2x day) dose prednisone to stop a severe blistering of mucosal tissue ., 2-3 degree burns of mouth, throat, sinus, eyes and even my heart. The possibility of this disease killing me without prednisone is real and my doctor explained that prior to prednisone a great majority of people with Erythema Multiforme – Major died.
So what’s the problem? Over many years and a dozen high dose treatments with prednisone I have been 302 committed and upon release my doctors where cautioned about this therapy.
During my most recent treatment, I went into a manic state or worse. I was PFA’d and removed from my home by police after scaring my wife and kids. I had to finish treatments at the hospital and I requested a psychological evaluation because I hadn’t slept in 5 days, almost lost my job, and was was manic or worse. After a discussion with a psychiatrist he added several different mood stabilizers and anti psychotic meds. I have come off the prednisone and the pshyc meds are taking effect. I cant wait until prednisone is out of my system.
My doctor now realizes after this last event a new protocol is being thought out with future treatments.
This I can tell you without a doubt in my mind that Prednisone is a miracle and a curse all rolled up into one medicine. If you are experiencing mental issues with prednisone tell your doctor immediately, insist on getting psychiatric support and PRAY.
