I am prescribed steroids whenever I get a chest infection, like most of us I presume. However, they have a terrible effect on my mood, leaving me very depressed and weepy, and also snappy and horrible to the people I love (as well as causing weight gain). I asked my respiratory nurse about it and she says there is nothing to be done, the tablets affect some people this way and I should just warn my family and get through it as best I can. Knowing this does not make it easier. I was just wondering how many others are affected by the steroids in this way? Or is it only me? Has anyone else found a better way of handling it? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
