    Default Side effects Prednisone + Clexane

    Just wanting to know if anyone has had any side effects to Prednisone and Clexane??

    Been prescribed both after yesterday's appt with Dr M where he told me I have MTHFR mutation and elevated NK cells. He didnt tell me which ones or what is considered normal. So anyone know an answer to that as well?? I have my results infront of me but dont understand any of it.

    I have some preexisting conditions like anxiety and a pretty dangerous heart condition which makes my heart rhythm irregular and i read Prednisone can give you that. So im a bit worried my heart will go crazy.

    Any stories, advice would be great.

    Thanks

    @Evelynmoo I take both clexane and pred for my IVF cycles.

    No real side effects from clexane other than bruising a little easier.

    Pred is known to cause mood changes. I certainly get those when I first start taking it and when I wean down to stop. This lasts a week or 2. It can also impact sleep so take it early in the morning to help eliminate that. I have anxiety and depression and it does make that slightly worse.

    I'm no real help with the NK cell stuff, hopefully someone else will pop along soon.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I guess I'll warn my husband about the mood changes lol

    Can I ask what dosage of Pred you are on?

    Im hetero for the other one.
    I apparently have NKC as well but from what I can tell (which isnt much) they arent that high. So he hasnt mentioned intralipids at all

    How long did it take you to get an appointment with Dr M? And how long before you got your blood test results?
    I think i waited 3 months for an appt. I cant remember coz i had to keep changing it and then had to wait 6 weeks to see him again to get results

    I'm on clexane and pred and I am getting ridiculously severe shortness of breath! I thought it might have been the clexane but after reading your post it might be the pred.
