The WORST Side Effect of Prednisone?

What’s the worst side effect of prednisone for you?

For me, the insomnia made everything in life worse, and seem to make all the other side effects even worse than they would be without insomnia.

But that pales in comparison to what some people experience while on prednisone.

Take Lambros, for example. He reached out to me because he has a tale to tell (with an iconic New York accent!) to anyone prescribed prednisone.

He wishes someone had told him so many things, had warned him.

He’s experienced the very worst prednisone side effect I’ve heard of.

It’s too late for him, but his warnings aren’t too late for you.

Watch now!

The WORST prednisone side effect?

Prednisone is a powerful medication prescribed for medical conditions such as pain management and spinal injuries. Unfortunately, it can also result in unpleasant side effects, including jaw-locking, low blood pressure, muscle sensitivity, and Cushing’s Syndrome.

People undergoing spinal fusions should remain in an upright position when sleeping, and those taking high-dose prednisone should consult a primary care doctor and/or endocrinologist.

The first and only supplement for people on prednisone

Nutranize Zone is a supplement containing calcium, magnesium glycinate, vitamin K2, and melatonin to counteract prednisone’s mental side effects. Additionally, chromium can help mitigate prednisone’s side effects, such as high blood sugar, hunger cravings, and weight gain. It is essential to be aware of potential prednisone poisoning and the drug’s side effects, to monitor blood pressure and sugar, and to stop taking it as soon as possible to avoid medical complications.


There are potential dangers associated with the use of prednisone, a powerful prescription drug. It also details the possible side effects of the drug, and provides an overview of helpful products and treatments to counteract the side effects. Finally, it emphasizes the importance of staying aware of the potential risks associated with taking prednisone, and making an effort to stop taking it as soon as possible in order to avoid serious medical issues.
