Does prednisone make you tired or sleepy?
No it does not, people have trouble sleeping while on prednisone. But not all organisms react in the same way to medications benefits, side effects, etc Do contact your Dr. I took prednisone this morning, my first time ever 10mg. I also have sarcoidosis so this may be exacerbating my symptoms. Immediately after taking it, I was ready to crash and I went back to bed for some much needed rest. Allergy medications have the same effect on me I am currently on Prednisone for poison ivy.
I was proscribed 30mg for three days then 20mg for 3 days then 10MG for three days. I am absolutely not functioning on this medication. I slept 11 hours last night. Got up took my Prednisone within an hour I was ready to go back to sleep. I slept all day I just finished diner here and I'm probably going back to sleep. Yes Prednisone makes me Very Very tired.
All three days I had this affect. Work was not easy on this medication. Thank god today was Saturday so I could get some much needed rest. I just started a day course of prednisone for poison ivy as well: I'm two days into the 60mg phase and finding myself dragging all day long as well. I'm not taking any allergy meds for the itch, just wiping down with isopropyl alchohol in the mornings and following that with tea tree oil, then wearing long sleeves after everything dries.
Keeps the itch down for several hours without the added loopiness of allergy meds. That's why I'm surprised the prednisone is what's making me so tired. It has to be that. And I haven't been overly hungry, either. People can handle meds so differently from each other. Just because the majority gets insomnia and hunger doesn't mean all will.
I do have thyroid issues or lack of a thyroid so I suppose that could play into all of this though my meds have been on target there for many, many months. I'm currently on a course of Prednisone to treat sciatica, and I'm having a hard time staying away for more than hours at a time. I'm on vacation this week so I'm napping several times a day, but wouldn't be able to take this during a normal work week, just cannot stay awake long enough to function normally.
On prednisone i felt on a high and had insomnia , the sleepyness and extreme fatique happened after my course had finished, then reoccuring chest infections, muscle pain, lethargic I was on a high dose of prednisone for about 6wks for liver inflammation and was tapered off.
As soon as I fully stopped the medication my feet started to really ache, then I could feel the aches move up my limbs week to week until it was in every joint of my body. I became extremely crippled with the pain like I was 90yrs old with bone disease. My specialist chopped and changed my regular meds to see if this was aggrevating my symptoms, but not an ounce of improvement got worse.
Finally he suggested I go back and try the prednisone as this was the only other factor we changed. My pain comes and goes but in no way as it was. At least I can now walk and kneel as I am a fairly active girl. Are you aware of any other meds beside prednisone that will cease the joint pain? I really don't want to be on this drug due to the other side effects.
I am off to see the Rheumoligist soon but there are no indicators in my bloodwork for inflammation in my body. I have read it may be an auto immune issue bought on by my liver stress. Please let me know your thoughts. I am taking Prednisone for PMR, 3 mg per day. I noticed rather quickly that my sleep improved dramatically. I attributed this to the fact that, thanks to the Pred, I was no longer in pain with body movements.
Not due to food as I'd had a very light lunch. For most people this is not the case. Prednisone works with the adrenaline system therefore for most people they are more edgy, have a hard time sitting still and difficulty sleeping.
Some will gain weight and or have a swollen face often referred to as "moon face due to fluid retention. These symtoms are usually for people who gave been on it a while. A day z pack will not cause these problems. Most will either have no trouble sleeping or will not be able to sleep or fall asleep easily.
I have read that, for long term use, it has a stimulant effect, I have been on it for the better part of 30 yrs and sleep has always been hard to get. I googled this subject because I have just taken prednisolone for a skin rash for the second time, and as last time it has wiped me out and I had to go to bed. Clearly not all bodies react in the same way - I'm relieved to find I'm not the only one!
I took Prednisone for the first time about 45 mins ago and I'm having trouble keeping my eyes open. I'm thinking I should avoid taking it before driving in the morning but it's unfortunate to have to miss a dose.
Yes, I am on a round of prednisone now for severe asthma exasperated 40mg for a few days, 30 for a few, 20 on so on. I was nervous because my friend said it made his heart race. And the doctor told me to watch the carbs because of weight gain. Today is my first dose and I am tired and loopy, heart rates fine, no sweating etc I guess everyone's body reacts different. This stuff is kicking my butt!!! I almost just nose dived into my keyboard at work!!! I feel like someone gave me a sedative.
If I start drooling on myself, I am done I took one 20 mg prednisone today. First one for sciatica. Couldn't keep my eyes open. Didn't expect that affect at all. Six days ago, I started a very low dose of prednisone 2. There have been several times in the past, where I've taken a taper-pack, which I tolerated quite well. This low does is making me feel very peculiar-- spaced out and kinda tired, as if I'm my brain can't make decisions. Still looking for answers?
