I can't take the way these steroids affect me ...
    #1573762 - 05/24/03 01:50 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

For those of you who don't know, I was recently diagnosed with Crohn's Disease, a form of inflammatory bowel disease ... the body tries to reject the intestines ... for an analogy, imagine how a PC would react if you tried to put Macintosh hardware in it, and vice versa ...

For a few weeks they put me on steroids ... the effects these give me are driving me crazy ... i feel angry ... not like myself ... uncomfortable/dizzy-ish ... just not like who i really am ...

Is there any way to alleviate this? I'm losing it, I can't deal with the way this is making me feel =(

I forgot to add that I am most likely going through withdrawal from the endless dilauded they kept me on in the hospital ...

In the words of The Hitchiker's Guide:

DON'T PANIC!

:smile:

I know what you are going through, to some extent anyway :smirk:

Just remember that IT'S THE DRUGS and not you that's angry. Remember that it will all be over soon enough.

You're cool, just chill and you'll be fine  :cool:

That sucks but its what has to be done. After alittle bit you wont have to takem anymore and you'll be all better and wont reject your gut :wink: There is also a possiblilty that those side effects are only at the begining, happens with alot of new drugs. I wish you the best of luck.

might as well eat extra protien, so as to build up more muscles. My friend had crohns disease too, and went through the same thing, he was on steroids for a bit, and said they made him crazy. Just take advantage of it. He is fine now, he takes a bunch of pills a day "pentasa". He is really smart too, so you must be also.

Stop whining, you girlie-man...

Seriously though, if they have you on medicine that you're really not liking, tell the doctor about it and they can usually prescribe something else that does the same thing & may have fewer side effects.

what kind of steroids are they feeding you? (undestor?) I did a short testoviron depo (testosterone) cycle and it made me feel like a thousand bucks. i had to cut it short as I'm prone to gynecomastria so i dont know about long term usage.
Most oral steroids are veeery hard on the liver specially alfa alkalized ones. You can use clomid or arimidex to lessen the side effects but I'm not sure how well that wold fit with your disease.
High blood pressure, head ache and dizziness is pretty common with some steroids. I did very extensive research on the subject before i foolishly decided to cycle so if you post your steroid i might be able to help you.

What did the doctor say?

the steroids, according to my friend who has crohn's, is suppose to streanthen his butt muscles  :smirk: and the inside of his rectum and his intestines, so they work to optimal performance. :grin:

I didn'y wanna fuck with reading everyone's post, so this may have been said:
A couple days of dilauded most likely won't cause much of a withdrawl.

My grandma was on steroids for awhile...they turned her into a total bitch.

How long do you have to be on the 'roids?

This is going to sound totally obvious,but tell your doctor exactly how you feel. Maybe he'll give you some benzos to calm you down or something,I dunno.

How long were you on the Dilaudid? I've been through hydromorphone(and every other opiate just about) withdrawal before,so I might be able to help you out. I can imagine that going through withdrawal and being put on steroids would be a shitty double whammy.

Actually, getting stoned might not be a bad idea. I mean, a couple tokes and that oughta take the edge off any 'roid rage, no?
