Subject: steroids

I started some steroid tablets on the christmas weekend. Took 5 5mg tablets for 5days then 4tabs & since monday 2 Jan I have been down to 3 tabs. For the last few days I have been feeling like i am getting a cold Then mon night i started feeling very odd. Cold nausea headache upset stomach. these feelings seem to get abit better and then come over me. tonight (wed) suddenly started feeling awful with these symptoms again. i have been taking the steroids in the evening. Just taken them. So I am wondering if this is due to the steroids or i have a weird bug. Any advice?

Hi Beth, phone your doctor as, even if you have a bug, you should get checked. There is norovirus going around my area but if you have upset stomach on steroids think you should talk to someone as might be going out of your body too quickly. Do you have out of hours gp you can ring?

As far as I am aware, steroids are usually taken in the morning as they mimic the natural steroids in the body being produced in the morning. Don't suppose this makes a huge amount of difference but on the occasions I've taken them in the evening I can't sleep!
