Steroid induced psychosis management

I also developed Steroid Psychosis after taking 10mg per day. I have Ulcerative Colitis. I was on Prednisone a total of 9 days before I took myself off of it. I was delusional, paranoid and delirious. I also had extreme sweating, severe insomnia and developed reddish-purple bruising all over the back of both my thighs. I ended up in a psychiatric hospital on day 11, where I was admitted for 3 weeks. They had to treat me with Anti-Psychotics and Depakote to pull me out of it. This was the most horrifying experience I've ever gone through. On all of my medical charts it now states that I am highly allergic to steroids. May God Bless anyone who has ever gone through this horror.

Cushing's syndrome relates to the multi-organ over exposure of iatrogenic or endogenous corticosteroid and is associated with a variety of psychiatric and psychological disturbances. In one study examining 43 patients before and after treatment for Cushing's psychopathology was observed in a considerable number. Only 8 patients of 43 with active Cushing's syndrome (19%) were without psychiatric symptoms. Psychiatric diagnoses included: neurotic depression in 20 (46%), possible neurotic depression in 1 (2%), reactive depression in 6 (14%), and non-specific neurotic symptoms in 8 (19%). Psychoses were suspected in 3 of the patients who were depressed, but none of the 43 patients with active Cushing's syndrome had a definite diagnosis of Schizophrenia, Mania, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or Generalised Anxiety Disorder.

Q. Had FMS for almost twenty years now, tried almost everything. Is Lyrica in the "steroid" family? Any one in this community could help me? I have given my few questions to find out an answer. I Had FMS for almost twenty years now, tried almost everything. I'm considering Lyrica but I'd like more info. Is Lyrica in the "steroid" family? If you go on Lyrica for a while & see no improvement with pain, is going off of it a big deal like with other med's, or can you simply just stop taking it? I take Ambien, will that have any interactions? I'm seeing my Doc about this at the end of the month, but I was hoping to get some personal experiences about it. Thanks for any thoughts! Thanks for your answers, keep them coming! A. according to this-

there is a moderate interaction. that means you can take them both but be checked regularly for depression of breath.

An acute myopathy has been observed with the use of high doses of corticosteroids, most often occurring in patients with disorders of neuromuscular transmission (., myasthenia gravis ), or in patients receiving concomitant therapy with neuromuscular blocking drugs (., pancuronium). This acute myopathy is generalized, may involve ocular and respiratory muscles, and may result in quadriparesis . Elevations of creatine kinase may occur. Clinical improvement or recovery after stopping corticosteroids may require weeks to years.
