ON the third day of prednisone intake i started feeling really tired, my eyes wont stop closing and i feel terribly sleepy most of the time.

Or maybe its the crohns? I think i have a partial blockage.

Sounds more like Crohn's than pred, normally pred does the exact opposite!

You are kidding me, aren't you!
I'm bombing round like a bee on acid!

If you have inflammation, then this will make your immune system work overtime = instant fatigue! Give it a few more days to kick in, and then you'll soon notice a difference!
Good luck xxx

I'm with Joan and Rebecca, when I was on pred it made me really wired and energetic! I am on Entocort now and am a bit disappointed that I'm not getting the same energy boost from it that I had gotten from pred. Although the upside to not being wired all day is that I can actually fall asleep at night. I agree with Joan, give it a few more days. I think it can take up to a week to kick in (although for me it kicked in on the first day).

I can relate. I never sleep as good as I do on Prednisone. I have no idea why, but i take it right before bedtime and usually sleep like a rock.

It just goes to prove how we all differ even with meds. I have never taken my pred at night I would have a hard time sleeping even more!
