Hello i was prescribed Avamys 275 (fluticasone furoate) (inhaled steroids)
Patient :Hello i was prescribed Avamys 27.5 (fluticasone furoate) (inhaled steroids) for an allergic reaction to DUST MITES
i was told to take it for two months, after a month or so i started to fall ill after within two weeks i was constantly at the hospital feeling weak one day with a virus the second and so on..
it wasn't until the end of the second month i woke up one night with a pounding heart ,tight chest and severe depression i have never experienced in my whole life , i went back to sleep and woke up next morning with depression where i would sit and cry for a good half an hour ..i googled my medicine and realised it was steroids and straight away threw it away
and called a couple of doctors saying i was constantly sick they told me this type of inhaler makes your immune system really low so your most likely to get ill..
after i stopped using the steroids my immune system got better as well as depression .. ( i have stopped the steroids 5 weeks ago from today)
but the depression has stuck to me .. i have negative thoughts and feelings i have lost the thrill in life and is constantly bored and hate everything i once loved.
i am fine and i don't have any physiological disorders and i have never been depressed in my life
what i want to know is what I'm feeling from the steroids? is it still in my system especially that I've been using it for 2 months if so when will it leave? why am i feeling this way i have no troubles in my life?
my doctor who prescribed the medicine denied everything i felt and said it was a small dosage but i know exactly what i felt and read a lot of side effects online of people complaining with depression .
Thanks for your query.
Read and understood your history of Avamys 27.5 (fluticasone furoate) (inhaled steroids) for an allergic reaction to dust mites, development of depression after using 1 month, pounding heart, tight chest - low resistance - viral affection - Doctors said that this was due to steroids in the spray. you stopped using the steroids -
what I want to know is what I'm feeling from the steroids?
>Certainly not, as the dose of steroid provided in the spray is in very low dose.
is it still in my system especially that I've been using it for 2 months if so when will it leave?
> You have stopped this 5 weeks ago and hence it is not in your system, washed off a long time ago.
why am I feeling this way I have no troubles in my life?
> Only you and Psychiatrist can tell the reason; the life is full of such reasons.
