Prednisone
SPREAD THE WORD
   

      | 477 |      LEAD PLAINTIFF: shelley      Case Filed: 2011-02-28
Case Summary:
I was first prescribed prednisone when i was 10years old. My parents and myself were never told about the serious side effects this drug had. I am 48 years old now and I have osteoporosis, and necrosis in my right knee. I am no longer able to work due to the pain and swelling I have in both by feet, both my hands and both my elbows. I also have steroid induced diabetes.

Case Detail:
I would like to be able to sue the manufacturer of this drug for not letting consumers know how bad the side effects would be. I can only think they didn't know what the side effects would be when they first started prescribing this medication. I am only 48 years old but my bones sure don't feel that way. Hoping you can help me resolve this issue.

Sincerely,
Karen Gaffey

Case Details:
I have been taking prednisone for 4 yrs for Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have been in good health all these years. A few weeks ago, I suddenly had excruciating pain in my hip and went to the ER. They told me I had a broken hip, most likely due to prolonged use of Prednisone. I had no injury to cause my hip to break, it just broke. I had to have a full hip replacement, costing me thousands of dollars in medical bills. I am still recovering, unsure when I will be able to return to work. I am worried about my other hip and bones breaking.

Case Details:
I have been off and on prednisone for many years due to my immune system being week and getting sick alot. I never knew anything like this was possible just by using a medication. Now i have avascular necrosis in my knees and hips and getting it into my ankles and elbows. Im in constant pain i stay at home in bed due to not being able to walk or do anything at all for that matter. I cant even go to the grocery store or anything and it saddens me that i cant get out and do anything with my kids and knowing i wont be able to enjoy grand kids either when its that time. Im 37 years old and have had alot of problems for many years but finally got diagnosed about five years ago. Im on ohio medicaid and was seeing a specialist at osu in columbus ohio but the last things he has told me was im too bad to do anything with due to being so young. How can a dr tell you that i thought the worst you got the more they woulld do for you. My husband has called to get me another appointment with the same dr but they have not returned his calls. My family dr did prescribe me a wheelchair and a handicap sticker,but its kinda a pain to have to haul around a wheelchair esdpecially in a car that isnt big enough for it,but thats the least of my problems i dont see a dr for it and havent for a while cause im kinda limited to drs with having medicaid. So i set here in bed not knowing what is going to take place with me and no meds for the pain so anything that can be done to help me would be greatly appreciated. So hopefully i can get an attorney that will just want paid if you win cause im on a fixed income and cant afford anything right now.

Case Details:
I was prescribed Prednisone for Lupus and was given 100mg per day. In 6 months time I was diagnosed with AVN bilateral hips. I was only 39 years old and have been in severe pain since. My whole life changed. I cannot run, jump, got divorced and so much more because of my disability. Not to mention I became a insulin dependent diabetic. I was living in the state of California at the time, because of my disability, I had to relocate back to Texas. I missed my girls prom, banquets and one daughters suicide attempt because of my disability.

Case Details:
My left kidney was removed in 2010 due to RCC "softball size" tumor in left kidney. Kidney removal was successful but the RCC disease matatesized to the lungs. Began fight to contain tumor growth in lungs and along the way, Prednisone was presribed to help deal with the multiple side effects from the oral chemo I was taking. Was given no warnings what soever of the high chance of AVN often caused by the Prednisone. My cancer itself remains in check as i transfer from one chemo type to another, but the last 2+ years of my life have been constant and severe pain in hips/legs. No longer able to do any physical work around the house. Constant depression because cannot do things that i was able to do before, even with the cancer and it's side effects. While the AVN may not result in death, it has certainly been life altering and i feel that i will never again be able to perform any work or activity because of the constant leg and hip pain.

Case Details:
my experience was that of euphoria and superhuman thinking abilities. i imagined that i could create a new business and make millions in the process. what i did was spend over $25,000 of my retirement money! i couldn't be stopped by my family or friends. it went on for weeks! when i came to from this poisonous drug i was depressed and extremely ashamed of what i did. i didn't know why i did these things. nothing violent just crazy spending and imagining of how powerful and smart i was. this should not be prescribed without a psychologist being involved from the start of usage. it may have saved my life but it ruined my retirement at an age where there is no work i will be hired for at 70 years old. this is a terrible experience! never again!

Case Details:
I was prescribed massive doses of predisone for asthma, with no monitoring whatsoever, never told what could happen from this drug.since taking this drug I developed avaccular necrosis and had to have a total hip replacement done. I was told by another doctor about a drug called theo and epinefrin that works just as well without the paranoia and depression and tremendous weight gain from prednisone.I now totally reject prednisone because there other medications out there that work just as well if not better. The makers of prednisone should be held responsible for what this drug does to people.

Prednisone cost me all of my personal and professional relationships. I have lost everything because of prednisone. Medical researchers have documented the steroid psychosis caused by prednisone and expert testimony is available.

Case Details:
At 21 was diag. with testicular cancer and given Chemo plus Prednisone. During chemo legs were so stiff had to use cane. Complained to doctor, said probably chemo drugs. Now at age 22, have AVN and am in the process of having a total left hip replacement next week and the other hip in a few months. Have had panic attacks, depression and confusion. If I had known that 3 months of prednisone would have caused me at 22 to need a double hip replacement I would have either lowered the dose or stopped taking it all together. I am not in a wheel chair and have been for 2 month waiting on the surgery. I am in constant pain. Someone needs to be held accountable for this PERIOD.

Case Details:
I have inoperable a vascular necrosis that is prednisone induced and my blood sugar has been running high for several months. I contacted a lawyer when I found out that the AVN could not be resolved with knee replacement surgery. The attorney informed me that I have exceeded the statute of limitations. I was informed I only had 2 years to file suit. I was diagnosed 9 years ago. I did not sue at that point because I was told that it could be taken care of. When I went to the orthopedic surgeon last month I was informed that the damage is to severe and it is irreparable. Is there anything I can do? I am on medicaid and because this is a chronic illness certain treatments are not covered.

Case Details:
Last year I developed a cough which turned into months and months of chronic bronchitis. I have many health problems and according to the information I was able to find, knowing my medical history he should have never put me on Prednisone. I went on to break 3 ribs from coughing and fractured my face when I walked into a door. I went to er and got admitted for pnemonia and I asked them and they confirmed that the doctor should have never put me on Prednisone and that it had infact now caused osteoporosis. If I had known this was a side effect I never would have taken it. 30 years old and I am now brittle like a 90 year old.

Case Details:
I suffer from ongoing physical harm from the side effects of the drug Prednisone. The attending doctor at the time was aware of the effect the drug was having on me, but insisted that I stay on the drug and against the advise of another doctor to take me off the drug. This drug effected me so negatively that it caused me to go into steroid psychosis. This drug caused other side effects and diagnose health hazards eg., osteoporosis, steroid, induced diabetes, neuropathy, joint pain, leg muscle cramps, blood cloths, ultra sensitive teeth, sense of taste distortion, mild Necrosis, tail bone pain, and cataracts. This prescription was given to me as a result of a diagnose illness of ulcerative colitis. With these side effects I don't believe I will ever be able to return type of work. I lost my business and home over this episode with this medication's side effects and improper medical attention.

Case Details:
I asked if she was giving me a steroid. She said it was predisone. I asked again if this was a steroid. Predisone is used to treat inflamation, not help heal and build muscles like anobolic steroids. Looked up web md. It confirmed what I thought that i should have been prescribed anabolic steroids not a cortisone steroid as she knew the injury occured a week ago the inflamation should be going away.

Case Details:
Ive worked in the medical field for five years and check different tests on myself regularly including glucose, at least twice a month. I was going to be prescribed predisone but too some labs before being prescribed. I did not fast because I'm not diabetic nor is anyone in my family. My glucose was 113 not fasting on 1/29/2013.
I started taking predisone and began urinating frequetly I didn't pay to much attention at first until 2/22/2013 when I could not sleep because of constant trips to the restroom. I went to work thinking it was probably a UTI so I did a UA test. I was shocked to see all was fine, but my glucose was off the charts. I retested and again off the chart. I then did a finger stick to get a reading and the meter could not read it because it was to high. This is a meter used at a doctors office. I flushed my system with water and rechecked and finally got the meter to read 380 and cannot get it under control. If I didn't work in the medical field I would have never even known my blood sugar was off the charts and I was in danger.
I afraid this drug has wrecked my life.

Then the week of Thanksgiving, 2012, my bicep tendon in my right arm tore and that has also been surgically repaired. I asked the Dr. if I needed to be checked for some kind of muscle disease or deficiency and he asked me what meds I had been taken and as soon as I said steroid he said that was what was doing it. At the time of the first tear I was a welder. At the time of the second tear, I was working in heating and air. I donít know that I will get the strength back to do either of these again. I have missed 3 of the last 4 years of work due to these injuries.

I expirenced years of chronic lower back and hip pain. The doctors believed it was due to possible Lupus or RA. I was placed on Prednisone. The doctors were wrong I don't have either. My hip was out of place, causing severe pain. I know have Cataracts in both eyes. I can't drive at night or work on the computer, which is a big part of my job. I am also only 28, and need to get surgery. I was not told about the extreme side effects of this drug.

Case Details:
He was prescribed presnisone for ulcerative colitis 20 years ago. Finally got off of it last year. He suffered extreme pain from joint deterioration, his skin became tissue thin and would tear and bruise at slightest touch. He had many other health issues; rapid heartbeat, blood clots, chronic sinus infections, water retention that caused pneumonia and heart damage, copd, was put back on a 40 mg dose two months before death due to inflammation, had weight gain and moon face within two weeks of being on it. He got little relief from pain and got weaker. Edema so bad in legs that they were weeping through his skin. Was sent to VA hospital by a different dr from usual one. Found he had "free air" in abdomen. Surgeon said long term prednisone use caused his tissues to be so fragile as to cause the tear. So fragile that he had to have a second surgery the next week because a small leg lift opened the surgical site and had to be completely reinforced with mesh. Extremely painful recovery from second surgery. Then one night he got sick at his stomach, kidneys failed, could not start new iv because of veins blowing everytime mess started. They moved him back to ICU, started a central line, but he bled out due to a tear in his stomach. I saw the amount of blood loss as being a quart. Before more blood could be given he coded and was totally gone in minutes. The surgeon stated again that long term prednisone use was the cause of my father's health problems, if which I have only named a few.

My father was a vibrant, active man (as well as he was able to be). He tried so hard to get enjoyment from life. His many health issues were caused by prednisone use. He tried many years to get off this drug, had so many difficulties that at one point he believed it would be impossible, but he persevered until he finally did for a few months. He spent his last year of life in and out of hospitals and having physical therapy tryng to be healthy.

My mother has suffered in trying to care for my father, as have I in trying to help him have any quality of life. He had to have many changes, such as using a cane, then a walker, lift chair, power chair, and using a wheelchair when he couldn't walk. If not for using prednisone for so long, I believe he would still be with us, woodworking, mowing the yard, doing things he enjoyed doing. Other than the joint deterioration and skin and tissue deterioration, the dizzy spells that caused him to fall and need medical treatment for skin tears, he was otherwise in good health. His health issues, even at 82, could be attributed to prednisone. A nurse at the VA told us the she had only seen three other patients with my dad's problems and they had all also taken prednisone long term.

People talk about it side effects in short term use, but my father took it @ 20 years. His body had been so damaged by it that he became dependent upon it to function, even as it was killing him.

While my goal is less a monetary one than it is to raise awareness among doctors and patients alike and possibly to prevent other families from the pain and suffering we went through in caring for ny father and the grief of his loss. He life was shortened and he had so many health issues that I believe he. Wouldn't have had if not for prednisone.

Case Details:
My arthritis doctor prescribed Prednisone for arthritis. I was on a dosage of 5mg per day, but the arthritis persisted. After a short while, my doctor raised the dosage to 15mg per day. Shortly after that, I blacked-out and almost entered a diabetic coma. I did not know that I had become a diabetic until I woke up in the hospital and found out that my blood sugar had skyrocketed to 1168. Now I take 4 shots of insulin per day. Because of the diabetes, I am tired all the time, but I cannot sleep. Not only that, but I'm still in pain from arthritis.
This whole ordeal has caused me to have to rely on my family and friends to constantly monitor me because I am afraid I might fall out again. I have had to move in with my niece so that she can keep an eye on me. I am no longer able to go places by myself because I'm concerned that my blood sugar may fluctuate and cause another black-out. Also, I have had to modify my diet tremendously, which has been a struggle because I am on a fixed income, so it's hard to afford healthier foods.

Case Details:
Had temporal arteritus treated w/ prednisone 2 years 2003-5. Hip pain in 2011 diagnosed as AVN by an ER, but next month ortho specialist dismissed ER AVN diagnosis writing in his treatment notes "no history of long term prednisone"...that history was in great detail in my patient records at that same institution. 11 months later same hospital radiology dept was giving me an injection for bursitis and doc viewed films from Oct 11 and reconfirmed AVN diagnosis. Great pain those 11 months and lost opportunity to treat AVN medically instead of surgically. Oregon Health Sciences University performed right total hip replacement 20 Aug and noted the AVN now in left hip, so replacement there due early 2013. I feel there was failure to diagnose, failure to treat, improper supervision (re: his errors not being caught), increased disability, pain and suffering, etc. Age 65 & no other AVN risk factors. Retired USAF.

I was treated for asthma instead of allergies for shortness of breath. Was prescribed prednisone for asthma since i was 17 when i go to ER. Started having hip pain, was diagnosed with Bursitis and given more prednisone for that. Then later was diagnosed with Avascular Necrosis by a different doctor who also diagnosed my shortness of breath was my allergies and not asthma, didnt even know i had allergies at the time. So the results are both hip replacements at 35.

My doctor ( quack ) prescribed prednisone for shoulder pain . Other than the pain in my shoulder , I was in great health for a 48 yr old man . I took it as he had directed . I tapered off as he ordered . I took my last dose , went back to work ( after my break ) . Had done NOTHING yet as far as work . Was not stressed over anything at all . Got all clammy & sweaty . Was thinking I had indegestion ( severe ) due to the pain in my chest . Was having a massive heart attack . Rushed me to the hospital . Now I'm on a half dozen medications I never took before . On a very strict diet now . VERY strict . I'm allowed 200 mg's of sodium for the entire day . That's basically NO salt . It was very painful surgery to put stints in my heart . Now I'm limited to what I can do , activity-wise . My quality of life has been altered dramatically . I am afraid to do just about anything , for fear of having a bad reaction to it . I don't care to die due to my doctor prescribing me something he maybe shouldn't have . As I said , I was basically healthy as a horse . I took this . Had a heart attack which nearly killed me . Now my quality of life has been compromised beyond repair .

Case Details:
My doctor prescribed me prednisone because he claimed I have a touch of asthma. After taking this medication only for a week on 2 separate time, I have severe breathing problems where I felt like too much air is going down my lungs. I lived in CT so in the winter time it is not too bad because I can stand the cold air a little, but in the summer time I have serious breathing problem, dizziness, to the point where I pass out a time or too. I start to get panic attacks now so bad it is not funnny. My life is upside down and inside out. Its getting hard to function. My doctor did not tell me nothing like this will happen. They gave my brother the same pil he called me last night and asked me if I have ever heard of this pill before and the symptoms. I was amazed that the same issue I am having for the past 2 years he starts to have it in 2 weeks of taking the medication. Someone should be held liable!

Case Details:
After months of dangerous fevers that lead to frequent stages of unconsciousness, misdiagnosis-es and Prednisone, My mother was told by the civilian children's hospital that given the dose I was on, I should be brought in immediately. The military doctor that had provided treatment was removed from her position and likely more for the malpractice preformed and I know of this because she contacted and confronted my mother for getting her "fired". Since my father was in the Air Force he convinced my mother not to sue but I wish she had. I am now 32, and have had many severe emotional problems. I have been diagnosed with an atypical type of "rapid cycling" bipolar disorder" but see many differences between myself and other bipolar people. I have a history of migraines, insomnia and other health issues that likely stem from the medicines given to me at this vulnerable stage in my life (especially prednisone). I am also very concerned and may need to be checked for osteoporosis due to a recent fracture that would insinuate brittle bones. I am currently seeking to obtain my medical records from these two NE hospitals... Any further information can be provided upon request.

Case Details:
before taking this drug i didnt have any form of diabeties. Now I am an out of control diabetic. The insulins and pills dont help much. I know 2 other people who never had any signs of diabeties until after taking this drug. I was never told that it would bring this on and I would have to suffer from it for the rest of my life. Ive been dealing with it since 1990. If I would have known this side afftect I would have ask for another type of medication.

Case Details:
In both of my knees, I have bone lose because of prednisone. Right now, my right knee has three spots where I am not getting any blood to my bones. I am looking at a knee replacement for both knees eventually. I was on the medicine for 6 months and had an adverse reaction to the medication, ever since my reaction my knees have been bothering me. Now I know why they are bothering me, they are not receiving my blood to my bones. I am too young to have both knees replaced, but because of this medication, it is going to have to be done.

Case Details:
Perscribed prednisone. told it was very safe to take and is impossible to have issues on it side effects started day one. day seven hospitalized. trouble breathing, chest pressure, etc. ensured not meds, told i have anxiety. ekg's showed heart attack/heart disease was admitted bc of possibiity of heart attack to come. nerves in arms cramped hands making impossible to move 20 minutes mutiple times. Released being told it was anxiety and not prednisone. Did research and found I had most very serious side effects listed, questioning about damage done b/c doc denied possibity of it being meds causing problems. No history of anxiety/mental instabiity. His reason for diagnosing anxiety is bc I just had a second child and have started back to school. I said but I am very happy and he said it doesnt matter. I only saw doc one time before I was hospitalized. Called reg doc before him saw 10 plus years. She said his diagnoses is crazy. I'm concerned he over looked possible problems caused from prednisone.

Case Details:
I was prescribed prednisone to combat a leg rash. I was taking 40mg per day for 5 days. A week after I suffered a panic attack while I was alone. I wasn't aware that even after taking this drug for a short period of time, a person should taper off. I am 53 years old have never had any type of anxiety or panic disorders. After reading other horror stories on the internet of people with similar problems after short term use, I am totally convinced this drug is responsible for my panic attack. This happened less than a week ago and I'm totally living in fear that this could happen to me again

Case Details:
My mother was given this for back pain,then was diagnosed with diabetes and almost died from the diabetes meds b/c she never really had diabetes,it was the prednisone that raised the blood sugar so they put her on diabetes meds which lowered her sugar so low she fell and almost killed herself! She is 67 and is suffering terribly from this drug! I have heard MANY horror stories about this,and NOT ONE doctor told her her sugar would raise.Someone ought to be held responsible for this!
