IV Steroids

SOOO…got a call from the hospital a while ago. I’m booked in to have my IV steroids on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Never had them before…anyone got any info on what i can expect?? I’m having them at 2pm on each day.

All information gratefully (!!) accepted!

They can make a person a bit hyper and jittery and sleep can be hard to come by on steroids nights. I would suggest a visit to the pharmacy and an investment in an over-the-counter sleep aid like Sominex or similar. You might not need it, but it might be nice to know it’s there.

I hope the steroids do the trick for you. They are powerful and effective drugs and really can quench a nasty relapse like nothing else. I have been very glad of them a few times.
