A Weak Stream

I encountered two unusual side effects to prednisone this week: frequent urination, and extreme muscle weakness.
If you think about it, those are not two symptoms you want to have at the same time. I had to pee every half hour, but my legs got so weak I could hardly walk … this is a recipe for disaster, or at least for adult diapers. Thank goodness it didn’t come to that!

Add that to the headaches—I mean, this stuff was supposed to help my headaches, not make them worse half the time—and my conclusion is that prednisone just isn’t worth it (for me at least; it works well for others). It goes on my do not take list, for good this time.
