I had a thought this morning.


I remember people talking about how steroids exacerbate tics. Someone said their husband(?) had a shot of prednisone years ago and hadn't ever recovered from the flareup in tics.


And I was thinking... my tics started when I was 17, about the time I was going to the allergy doctor. He was giving me allergy shots on a weekly basis (which I think I researched and they do not contain mercury, but I just remembered, he also gave me FLONASE.


I checked and it is a corticosteroid.


I remember I enjoyed using it cuz it cleared out my nasal congestion.


Discuss the feasibility of a corticosteroid such as Flonase inducing tics in someone who previously did not have them.


Are there any documented cases of corticosteroids inducing tics in someone who was genetically predisposed?


If I could go back in time I would tell myself not to ever go to the allergy doctor.




(It also sucks about the steroids because I was planning on using HRT as I got older to retain my youthful strength and energy, but not if an increase in tics is the side effect. Maybe in the next 20 years they will cure tic disorders and then it won't be an issue :D )
