  • Prednisone

    I was placed on Prednisone for a week. I am now trying to taper off of it. Can Prednisone irriatate the bladder. I have been in a flare since starting it.

    I had to take a 14 day course of this evil drug a few months ago and in the beginning of treatment it did increase my frequency. Just as well as I was already awake from the insane insomnia it caused me too!

      I just finished a 6 day course and it sure didn't help me either plus it gave me insomnia the first few nights. my bladder did feel worse while I was on it but I thought it was in my head because I thought prednisode was supposed to help.

      Gelnique for frequency/urgency - works great
      Macrobid after sex
      Prilosec, continuous birth control pills
      synthroid .088mg, mucinex-d, restasis

      Supplements: Desert Harvest Aloe vera, Cysta-q, prelief, magnesium and calcium, Vit D, flaxseed oil

      Diag Mild IC Jan 11 but have had symptoms for 25 years. Also have GERD, TMJ, IBS-C, chronic dry eye syndrome, hashimotos thyroiditis, non-allergic rhinitis.

        If you ever have to take this horrible stuff again, use Tylenol PM. It does help you sleep.
        I have been trying to tapper off for 3 weeks and am still on it. I am having withdrawals and will never take it again.
        The bladder has settled down as I am going to the Chiropractor and it helps.
