PREDNISONE (STEROIDS) SIDE EFFECTS

Started this discussion. Last reply by Uncus Dec 28, 2012. 17 Replies

I was wondering has anyone had bouts of anxiety or depression, mood swings, etc as a result of the steroids? If so what did you do to change it or how are you coping with it?

Hi Yvonne!

I just came across your page and wanted to find out more! I'm a psychology grad student studying the impact kidney transplants have on the lives of the recipients and their families. Would you be interested to share more about your experience with me? Please feel free to leave me a comment if so! I'm a future psychologist and my study is going to contribute to the mental healthcare that recipients and their families receive before, during, and after the transplant process. 

Thanks! :)

Mariana
