    Treated for chronis sinusitis. I am having surgery soon and the doctor wanted to try to reduce the inflamation. I am on 40 mg for 3 days, 20 for 2 days, 10 for 3 days. However, I took one dose of 40 and within about 12 hours, I had an irregular heart beat (a condition I already have - though in rare instances and my docs call it 'harmless').

I had anxiety attacks so ... Show Full Comment
