    I have had my second treatment a week ago. In addition to the chemo, the doctor prescribed prednisone, 100 mg. per day for 5 days. I take the steroid during and after each chemo treatment.

    The prednisone has me jumping off the wall. I am nervous, hyper, jumpy and terrible to be around. I can only catch a few minutes of sleep at a time during the night and I never did get in the habit of taking naps, so that is out of the question.

    The effects wear off after about 9 days and I get back close to normal. Then I have to start all over again.

    Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

      Yes, I was walking in circles around my office because my feet and hands wouldn't stay still. I started going half crazed too. I was convinced my wife had been in an accident, while nothing was wrong. I couldn't sit still. My doctor cut my dose in half, I was back to normal.
