PredniSONE Auto Immune Diseases, Severe Mood Swings, Adrenal Glands, Crohn S Disease, Crazy Mood
If ever you are prescribed PREDNISONE, please research your dosege, your condition,and your prescribing MD......wish I had.
Lostris - Many of those with auto-immune diseases such as Crohn's Disease are forced to go on a prescribed steroid known as Prednisone. The effects of Prednisone are terrible. Prednisone creates water retention (puffiness) in your face and torso. It causes severe mood swings. It also causes your hair to fall out. And that is just going on the Prednisone. Once you get off the Prednisone, you then have to deal with the adrenal insufficiency as Prednisone can shut down your adrenal glands. There seems to be little support for people who have been on Prednisone. They seem to be left alone to deal with the side effects and the confusion and fear that it causes. This is what this group aims to do: Create a support for People on Prednisone or who have been on Prednisone :) Provide awareness of how Prednisone can and has affected lives. So if you are feeling down or suffering from crazy mood swings or can't handle looking in the mirror anymore then come and let it all out ! http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=7321407847
