    Double Edged Sword Of Decadron

    hey all,last year I went thru 6 weeks of stereotactic radiosurgery due to a grade II/III astrocytoma.  To reduce brain swelling, I had to take about 20 mg of decadron daily, this stuff is 40 times stronger than cortisone, so I 'enjoyed' the side effects of about 8000 mg of...

    I've Taken:

    Prozac: killed off much of my sex drive, messed with my sleep, and the worst of it: major suicidality when I first began taking it. (I was in my teens so the effect was not unheard of). Take with caution and watch your reactions carefully. Prednisone: This medication deserves...
