    This is my only horrendous story about all of my treatment. After only one dose, given in with my chemo treatment I received Dexamethasone... or something like that spelling. I became horribly depressed. I was then "accidently" give a second dose and became suicidal. I was very afraid if my husband even left the room. There is nothing to counteract it and it took about a month for me to return to me. I had to be very pro-active and question what was in my infusion from then on. I would have been given a third dose (!!!!) if I hadn't questioned the nurse. The order had never been changed in my their computerized system. That was my story with steroids. This is a rare side effect but it was terrifying and I was, in no way able to "will" myself to feel better. Sharon

    Hi Rita, I've been having trouble with the steroids. My doctor had to change my chemo from Taxol to Abaxane because of my reaction to the steroids. I got a terrible rash that started on my face and then went to other parts of my body. I also experienced insomnia that kept getting worse as the weeks past. Plus I had teary eyes. Today was my first Abraxane. I didn't require any premeds. Are you experiencing side effects?

      I had to take anti-nausea med every 4 hours for 2 days following a treatment. I only had the steroid as a premed (through the IV) at the time of the treatment. The antinausea meds made me really drowsy but that is better than feeling nausea. What...

      I had to take anti-nausea med every 4 hours for 2 days following a treatment. I only had the steroid as a premed (through the IV) at the time of the treatment. The antinausea meds made me really drowsy but that is better than feeling nausea. What are you experiencing? And yes I did feel like I was taking so many pills as I'm not really fond of meds.

      I forgot to tell you that the steroid that was given to me at the treatment is the same as Sharon's. The total amount they gave through the IV at each chemo was 18 mgs. I never took steroid tablets. How long do you have to take them for?
