okay , i was on 15mgs for 9 months missed a night had a panic attack . took it slept was fine took it 2 further nights and was fine . got a chest infection and was put on 8 steroids which sent me into a crazy cycle of anxiety panic attacks etc. now the doc has decided to cold turkey me off the mat just after increasing the dose to 30 mg , does anyone else get a racing heart and insomnia with the withdrawal?

    i just wanted to tell you about my experience with steriods. A little over 4 years ago, I woke up at 2am with vertigo. i really thought i was dying. Rushed to ER and given meclizine and predisone. 3 days later I was back in the ER with my first panic! That started my journey through hell and back. I will never touch steriods again. I think people like us can get triggered by them. I have spent the last 4 years on Mirt, Lexapro, and Klonopin. I tapered off the Mirt and Klonopin and feel so much better now. I think you should NOT cold turkey Mirt. I started my taper in January and just completed it in October. I am thinking of you and praying for you! I wouuld not wish thia on anyone and I am here for you!
