How long do the effects of this medication last? I had two shots in one week along with a zpak and that did not phase the poison. After a trip to EM and referral to dermatoligist, went on more predisone, then had heart palpitations, high blood pressure, blurred vision, ringing ears-another trip to EM. All the while I'm on benedryl 24/7 for the itching. After 3 weeks of this, I've now been off 1 week. I felt weird on it, but feel weird off it. Severe headaches, extended abdomen-which is supposed to happen when you're on it, puffy face. What is going on? Someone please advise.
