Customer Question
Does prednisone cause hair...

Does prednisone cause hair to not curl. I have always let my hair dry natural. I am on my second round of steroids and now my hair does not want to curl natural

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes I am seeing three doctors.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am having a bad reaction to Botox injections that were given for Migraines. I was told I was over medicated and that all the fluid has settled in my eyes.

Doctor's Assistant: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?

That is one of the doctors that I have recently seen. My eyesight is fine other than the fact that my eyes are so swollen that I can barely see.

Hi there,
That is not a typical side effect of Prednisone, but rather a rare one that is affecting you. Once done with Prednisone, it should go back to where your hair can be curled. I would wait a few days after all done with Prednisone. Hope this helps. Please let me know if have other questions :)

Some patients did report Prednisone made their hair thinner and straight, and it usually is curly and a lot thicker.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
