Mental confusion side effect from Steroids
hi. I started 20mg Prednisone/Methylpredisolone one month ago. I am noticing that my brain doesn’t function like it used to. very forgetful and the strangest decision making mishaps – I often do or say the exact opposite of what I intend to do. For instance I will grab the wrong thing like the pepper instead of salt (just a simple example). Or I will type the opposite word. I will switch words. Switch letters in words. Lots of typos. Sometimes I even see words on paper that are not there. The doing opposite thing is the most annoying.
Anyone else going through this? Will it get better once I taper or stop steroids all together. ?
