Prednisone

Prednisone Reactions 1680, p285 - 2 Dec 2017 Steroid-induced psychosis: case report A 23-year-old woman developed steroid-induced psychosis during treatment with prednisone [route, dosage not stated]. The woman presented due to syncope with acute blood loss secondary to menorrhagia. After the presentation, she was diagnosed with lupus, and she received prednisone. Shortly after the prednisone therapy, she developed acute onset of anxiety, insomnia and command auditory hallucinations [duration of treatment to reaction onset not stated]. The woman’s prednisone therapy was therefore stopped and risperidone was started. Remission was achieved for one day, but she again developed psychiatric symptoms due to a lupus flare. The woman’s prednisone therapy was restarted at a lower dose along with antipsychotic medication. Thereafter, a complete remission was achieved and psychosis symptoms disappeared.

Abstract

Reactions 1680, p285 - 2 Dec 2017 Steroid-induced psychosis: case report A 23-year-old woman developed steroid-induced psychosis during treatment with prednisone [route, dosage not stated]. The woman presented due to syncope with acute blood loss secondary to menorrhagia. After the presentation, she was diagnosed with lupus, and she received prednisone. Shortly after the prednisone therapy, she developed acute onset of anxiety, insomnia and command auditory hallucinations [duration of treatment to reaction onset not stated]. The woman’s prednisone therapy was therefore stopped and risperidone was started. Remission was achieved for one day, but she again developed psychiatric symptoms due to a lupus flare. The woman’s prednisone therapy was restarted at a lower dose along with antipsychotic medication. Thereafter, a complete remission was achieved and psychosis symptoms disappeared.
