If you’ve never had the pleasure of taking ‘The Devil’s Tic-Tacs’, aka Prednisone, count your damn blessings. When I say that shit makes me crazy, I’m not kidding. No sleep, extreme anger, roller coaster emotional states, hunger on a level I cannot even put into words, & major, major aggression. I refuse to take it ever again, I’d rather be miserable & in pain from lupus issues than take that shit.
The oral surgeon has given me a prescription for the steroid Medrol because of how badly my body is reacting to having my wisdom teeth out. I’ve got inflammation on a major way from the surgery. Add in the fact that the surgery has set off a lupus flare, & y'all see where this is going.
I’m paranoid about taking this Medrol stuff. I probably shouldn’t be, but any drug that has any version of 'predni—-’ at the front of the generic name makes me worry. I’d rather be in pain that take any version of Prednisone type shit, no matter how bad the pain is. I really did call Prednisone 'The Devil’s Tic-Tacs’ to the dentist & surgeon, & told them how badly it messes with me. I asked if Medrol was going to do the same thing, & I was told it shouldn’t…but there was a small possibility that it could.
If there is a small possibility something could happen…I am always in that .00000001% that doesn’t react 'right’/heal 'properly’/etc.
Somebody pat me on the head & tell me whether or not I’m being paranoid/suspicious/skeptical.
I hate hate hate hate medications that have the ability to change my period. All through my illness my period has been the only regular thing about me. It was always there on the days it was supposed to and I was fine with it.
So when pills mess my period up, I feel like my life is out of order.
