I have been taking Dexpak for one week for poison ivy. I have not been able to sleep since I began treatment except for an hour here or 2 hours there at night. I would like to get off this med ASAP but I still have 6 more days left in the packet. I'm becoming a walking zombie. How can I get off this stuff now?

Response from Dr. Young

You could stop the steroid pack, but with anything like this, you should contact your doctor first. BY

my meds
should I have started meds?
