I have been prescribed Prednisone to hel with severe ankle

I have been prescribed Prednisone to hel with severe ankle pain. I have been following the doctor's instructions except, since the pain went away very quickly, after 5 days I tested the prednisone. I stopped the one dose each morning on Friday morning. 8 oclock that night I got dizzy, weak and dis coordinated. Not so much that I could not continue my activities. I have heard that Prednisone is a steroid and should be avoided. Any response to all this?

I can't afford you. Sorry

I was prescribed levaquin and prednisone for 10days for flu associated bronchitis with acute asthma exacerbation , I have been on them for 7 days. I had noticed pain and aching in my ankles and feet, of which never cause me pain. Today I can hardly walk the pain is so severe in my ankles and feet. Feels like there are vice grips on the side of my feet. In looking up the side effects it appears this is a bad combination that has been prescribed for me and I feel I should immediately stop. I was started on the taper dose of prednisone and am on day 1 of 3 tablets. Started out on 60mg for 2 days tapering by 10mg every 2 days. Levaquin is 750mg. I am worried and my bronchitis and asthma flare up have resolved. Should I go ahead and stop both these now. Thanks Hilda Moose RN

Hi, recently I developed small red spots on my skin that are extremely itchy. It started on my lower leg and has spread to my arms, ankles, hands, and even small spots on my torso. I saw a doctor yesterday and he said he saw a few people with similar symptoms recently and prescribed Prednisone. I don t think its anything severe but I am going on vacation Thursday and want the small red dots to go away. Will this help?
