I was recently diagnosed with RA and put on a 30 day regimen of prednisone. I am finding that I am nauseated after taking it. Does anyone else have this problem?
Hi, and in addition to splitting the dosage sometimes the Meds taken at night help you"sleep" through the nauseous feeling.
It might not be a coincidence. People react differently to medications. I'd eat a meal a half hour before I took it. If that doesn't work, you'll most likely feel much better when you get below 8 or 9 mg. If you still feel sick, ask your doctor about split dosing.
I hope your body adjusts sooner rather than later. Best wishes! @A myRAteam Member
I never got nauseous from it but after about day 3 I will eat anything not nailed down. Like, I will steal candy from a baby or a honeybun from your grandma. I also seem to give up sleep after about day 3 and become this super energetic frenetic beast. My friends and family prefer that I stay off prednisone.
