I started taking Edecrin for ankle swelling in June of 2017, regularly during the summer months, then intermittently as needed during the fall and winter. In December, I began having vomiting, severe watery diarrhea, chills, achiness, and severe weakness and fatigue whenever I took it. I cannot go to work in this condition; not sure what I will do next for the edema since I am allergic to sulfa.

I started this med in June of 2013 to help lower my BP along with other meds. This past November I started vomiting odten. Tried eliminating all other meds one at a time with no change. I decided to skip my edecrin today. I feel great now. Can this be explained? Will take BP tomorrow.
