I can't seem to find a med that works for me, I've tried several. I was recently put on prednisone for my sinuses, which i have three times now, and the stuff makes me feel great. No depression, focus, energy, clarity and motivation. What is it in prednisone that makes me feel this way.
I know you can't stay on it so I need to find it's pharmaceutical cousin. Has anyone ever had that effect on prednisone?Hi piscesdreamer68Prednisone is a steroid and used in lots of different conditions and is certainly not for long term use because of the long term side effects and changes it can make to different organs.
Does Prednisone cause Euphoria?
You are obviously having nice 'side effects'just now. These won't last as steroids have long term side effects on various organs in the body that means only people who need long term steroids have to take them.There are no ADs that are also steroids! Have a chat with your Doctor anyway and see what he can recommend.

It made me feel amazing!I was put on a steroid in the same family as Prednisone (Dexamethasone, a corticosteroid) for fertility testing and experienced a month and a half of pure bliss, it was the best 6 weeks of my life. Everything was clear, focused and happy.
I felt quick, sharp, had tons of energy and had sooo much motivation and confidence. I loved every single aspect of being alive.

I always described it by saying I felt like I finally had blood flowing into my brain. Having experienced actual happiness and clarity, I am sure that the life I had pre-steroid had some major mix of adult ADD and depression. I knew that as soon as I had to start tapering down the steroid, I'd need an appointment with a psychiatrist.

But it's actually a really complicated thing to find I haven't had any success yet. I thought it would be as simple as telling the psych, "i was just on a steroid, and it made me mentally clear, so what's would be an equivalent prescription?"My psychiatrist told me that what I'd described in that "steroid state" was really similar to the effects of ADD stimulants - Ritalin, Adderall, etc.
Prednisone, Why Does It Make Me Feel Good?
She diagnosed me with adult ADD and started me on Focalin (in the Ritalin family), then Vyvanse, Adderall and so on. When I first took most of these, I thought they were exactly what I was looking for, But a couple hours later the crash was horrible.
And then the days came where they just wouldn't even kick in at all. My psychiatrist is baffled and can't figure out why I'm metabolizing everything so quickly; she sent me to an endocrinologist for thyroid & adrenal testing, but all my blood work came back normal.
