I've seen videos that say that prednisone and glucocorticoids like symbicort can cause brain damage, neuron death in the hippocampus. I started experiencing all of these during the 5 days of taking this medicine and after. I was taking prednisone as high as 50mg/day recently and usually take it at 10mg day. I have asthma and its the only thing keeping me going. I want to know when I am going to start feeling better. I've heard that prednisone does cause brain damage in lupus sufferers Under what daily dose and time length do prednisone, symbicort, qvar cause brain damage? I am scared to drive, and I am a stay at home mom of two little girls and I haven't been able to take care of them at all. I asked my pulmonary doctor and he told me that high dose prednisone can make your thinking "fuzzy." He told me when the dose is lower, it will resolve itself. I explained it to my husband as virdigo feeling but i can not describe it I over all feel not myself and out of it. Over the past year, I have noticed that my thinking is not always as clear as it used to be when I was not on prednisone. I do things everyday now to keep my mind stimulated. My symptoms have been rapid heart beat, anxiety, dizziness, nausea, head aches, blurred vision, hard time catching my breath, wobbly, I can not stand for more than 30 seconds or I am very afraid I will pass out, numbness of tounge, mental fogginess, extremely emotional, constantly hungry, I really can't explain how I feel. I am respiratory therapist and I never noticed my thinking being off. I feel better for the first hour I wake up and I am hoping that this is almost over, I will never take prednisone ever again. I also exercise as much as my body will allow,drink plenty of water and have totally cleaned up my eating. Please talk to your doctor or his nurse about this. Also, a person has to have an extrememly high dose as well as super long term to get that bad. I started feeling absolutely horrible 2 days after starting this medication and every single day it has been worse since then. I know it’s not something we all like to think about or talk about, but I have noticed that my “head” has changed a bit during the two years of my PMR. My mood and cognitive abilities seem to have changed during corticosteroid treatment with prednisone and I’m not sure if is it just because I’m getting “older” – or is it the drugs ? Reading all kinds of different things in papers, books, etc., it appears that the neuropsychiatric effects of corticosteroids are very complicated, unpredictable, and can be severe and identified across many aspects of mental and social disorders. There seems to be a commonly used term - ‘steroid psychosis’, which describes a variety of specific conditions related to the results of taking corticosteroids and these include mood changes, anxiety symptoms, cognitive impairments, and behavioral changes. During the many appointments that I have had with my doctor and rheumatologist, the ‘mention’ or review of steroid psychosis doesn’t seem to have come up at all, until I brought it up as a ‘passing’ question of interest. And the response was “so what condition of the psychosis do you have and what are you concerned about”Wow !! How do I know – apparently it’s not the job of the rheumatologist to pick that up this topic early in the doctor/patient relationship and investigate potential issues with appropriate questioning! So what should we do to improve our understanding of potential and active corticosteroid-induced effects ?
This is the 2nd time my allergist prescribed it to me (last time was this past summer and I had severe panic attacks and thought I was losing my mind) this resulted in me returning back to my GP and him putting me back on Paxil (which I had been off of for a year).

These include, among many others, arthritis, gout, lupus, psoriasis, asthma attacks, severe allergies and multiple sclerosis. Despite prednisone’s many uses and effectiveness, it is known to cause many side effects.
