[quote:Anonymous Coward 26048166:MV8yMDQyMzQ4XzM0MzM4MDU3X0RDQkEwQUU=] OP, I've never told my story to anyone...as I'm still in recovery faze. My family knows first hand what happened to me, but I am a victim of this, as well. First, my heart aches for you and your son. I'm just so sorry this happened to him and to you and all of your family. You are in my heart and my thoughts and will be, forever. Your son received one of the most potent glucocorticosteroids. My experience was betamethasone and kenalog, amongst one other. OP, my addrenals were suppressed (it is now assumed) during the summer and into Sept 2012. The emotional effects are real and serious. I thought about suicide. I did not tell anyone, because the e/r had treated me as if this was all made up. My family knew this was not me, and were frustrated and irritated with these doctors as well. Steroid w/d syndrome is misunderstood and underdiagnosed/misdiagnosed. The one area no physician, except my PCP, understood the depression and panic attacks. Your son was in pain and no one understood and they failed to help and protect him. My addrenals were 'ok' however, my tests were influenced by stress (can increase cortisol in blood work). I am still under going more addrenal testing. I began taking massive amounts of Vit C and several other supplements when the w/d started, because I was terrified of addrenal crashing. I went orthostatic at one point, from the w/d and ended up in the e/r via ambulance. And, no one, again, medically understood what was happening. I am with you...I'm with you in this fight and I promise you this; when I am fully recovered, it is within me to go fwd with this story, and push for more education and patient informing, regarding the side effects of corticosteroids. Like you son, they pumped me full of it, and cold turkey'd me too. I will fight for your son. I will fight for you. It's those, like us, who need to go fwd with our stories. We are not alone. Most do not know what fights I've taken on regarding pharma in this country. I know where to begin and I know what it takes. It's not a guarantee, but we need to educate these people who take an oath to help us, this can not happen anymore. Your loss is unacceptable. My heart just so truly, reaches out to you. Your son is in my prayer and so are you :red_heart: [/quote]
Use of high-dose steroids "for more than a week" begins to produce suppression of the patient's adrenal glands because the exogenous glucocorticoids suppress hypothalamic corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) and pituitary adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). With prolonged suppression, the adrenal glands atrophy (physically shrink), and can take months to recover full function after discontinuation of the exogenous glucocorticoid. During this recovery time, the patient is vulnerable to adrenal insufficiency during times of stress,such as illness.
The most serious side effect occurs after the adrenal glands cease natural production of cortisol, which methylprednisolone will replace. Abrupt cessation of the drug after this occurs can result in a condition known as Addisonian crisis, which can be fatal.
Having natural Cortisol depleted on a cold turkey dose quit the person under the drug withdrawal can commit suicide under the psycological stress the withdrawal produces ..
My son Emmanuel on 11/1/2012 commited suicide ..
Emmanuel dose was not steped down, his dose was cut cold turkey causing a drop in natural cortisol that aparently led to a crisis he tried to scape by suicide.
The intent of this post is to warn others about the harmfull effects this drug produces and to investigate if similar cases has happened to others ..
Emmanuel Was 20 years at his death ...
A young man with great promise hopes & dreams truncated by a drug he was not able to handle and us his parents had no information on its withdrawal effects .
Pining will be greatly aprecciated so others get informed.
Thanks me his father ...
