Reply To: Prednisone

It seems to me more likely that the jerkiness is merely an aspect of your neuropathy. There are many possible significant side effects of prednisone, but I don’t see where that is one. In any case you were using it for only a short time.

Response to drugs varies, but in my case I had no adverse response while taking it for a much longer time. I started at 60 mg and tapered zero over a span of about a year. That’s a normal pattern. It is a standard treatment so it is not surprising to me that it was prescribed for you, but it seems unusual to me that it would be used for such a short time.

It is not possible to determine whether your current status would have been better, worse, or xactly the same had you not taken prednisone. I wouldn’t worry about it.
