Well, I started back on prednisone and zpak for labyrinthitis. Of course what do you know, I'm freaking out. Sweating a lot, constantly having to urinate, anxiety to a very, very, uncomfortable state. I can't even close my eyes. It's not even 8 pm yet and I feel like its going to be a long night. I know I need to keep taking my meds but I really don't want to, I just want to give up. Ugh. I really, really, REALLY hate feeling this way. I hope everyone on here is at least is having somewhat of a good day/night.

    I remember taking that and having major anxiety because it mad me feel more strange than i already felt in the first place. I called the pharmacist because i thought that i was having a terrible reaction to it and the pharmacist told me that it was normal to feel a little strange on it because it is one of the antibiotics that can cross the blood brain barrier. I don't know whether or not you knew that but just wanted to let you know because it made me feel better to know why.

      No not a bad thing it makes it be able to be very effective. Not many antibiotics have the ability to cross the blood brain barrier. You are so right about steroids too, ugh. I hope you feel better soon, and always remember you can call your doctor or pharmacist to double check that what you are feeling is at least some what normal lol.

    Too many symptoms. You should contact your doctor immediately with your situation. I hope it gets much better.

    I think your post says it all.

    you know your condition and the meds at the minute are hurting,

    stick them out kidda cos all meds (as I am aware you know) react differently person to person.    It's good to express your feelings in posts with similar minds,   But you are a self helper and know where the problem is.   Balance is key kidda, but I have a underlying feeling you know that.    Well done for being open and please take some confidence in the fact that being to express your feelings puts you miles ahead of the rat race wink  meds need to change but ride them out for a bit first wink
