It's hard to imagine any pain worse than losing a child. I'm so sorry.

It's very kind of you to make an effort to warn others. Emmanuel would be proud and he'd want you to stay strong.Here's a karma pin for you and Emmanuel. It may save a life.

God bless you and your family.

What did the doctor say?
It sounds like this a common problem/side effect with this steroid.
Did the doctor mention any risk with this treatment before prescribing the steroid?

Re: Warning about Methylprednisolone (Drug of Death)
I was prescribed this last winter, I read the insert and the problems associated with it and chose not to take the meds. I had previously had a cortisone shot in my neck for a bad disc about 20 yrs ago and had a very bad reaction so was a bit careful about taking any prednisone type med and the prednisone/cortisone as I understand it all are in the same family of drugs.

Yet you guys are trying to tell me that a 2 second Wikipedia search was out of your reach? I have a suspicion that the drug and pharmaceutical culture in the USA, where pharmaceutical drug addiction is promoted as cool had something to do with this..people just don't realize that there is nothing glamorous about pharmaceutical drugs

It happens a lot more than one could imagine. Not only this drug, but any drug that causes habituation.. especially benzodiazepines. And being such a well studied effect how can someone advise or prescribe any treatment and not follow the process to make sure the withdrawal is done correctly??

Not much one can say besides sending my strengths and friendship.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22459462


yep those are really bad, my getting off of Klonopin was not pretty. I was put on it for restless legs. I did not have an "addiction" to it, meaning I wanted more and more. I took the same dose at bedtime every night for a couples years or more until we found out my restless legs were serious magnesium deficiency. If I forget my magnesium during the day, I will have restless legs during the night. MOST of restless legs is magnesium deficiency, but sometimes Potassium or calcium for some people.

You are exactly right about the RLS being a magnesium deficiency. I too was on the Klonopin-2 mg and I had a prescription for Ambien. I took myself off of both.

This drug is nearly always prescribed in a decreasing dosage dose-pak.

It is used IV when patients who have been on long term steroids arrive in the ER with fever, weakness, or hypotension.

Steroids should never be used for minor illness, nor when patients have any psychological history, ulcers, TB, diabetes, or concurrent infection

Re: Warning about Methylprednisolone (Drug of Death)
Corticosteroid withdrawal....

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 ...
y_tears 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 ... too_sad

Wow, thanks that is a long list. I did research for myself, but I do believe that people especially the younger crowd and those with small children just automatically trust their Dr and what ever the Dr prescribes. unfortunately, and they dont ask enough questions.
