What type of affects have you experienced with taking steroids?

I had an allergic reaction to Latuda and was put on steroids. I am experiencing moments of confusion and agitated voices. Anyone have experience with steroids and antipsychotics together?

I am on steroids frequently (I’m assuming we’re talking about the glucocorticoid ones, such as prednisone, not anabolic steroids weightlifters use) because of my uncontrolled asthma. They CAN cause psychosis. My pdoc told me that as I was weaning off of prednisone (had been on 10 mg for 9 months) to be on the lookout in the future if I get put on steroids that they can cause psychosis. Prednisone is a great med, but it has some nasty side effects, for sure.
