    I’m taking prednisone after cataract surgery to reduce swelling in the eye but am having headaches. I read a post that coffee helps. Has anyone found ways to prevent headaches while on prednisone?

    I take a short course of pred for my allergies about once a year -I do drink about two large cups of coffee regularly -the pred doesnt bother me —I recall awhile back there was a prescription pill on the market that contained caffeine -Sounds like a good starting point –Suggest if you generally dont drink coffee -Use dunkin donuts hazelnut coffee and use one of these creamers –you should find it tasty —Dont use a strong blend –you could find it bitter !!!! Good luck

    Richie- The coffee did help and I did some meditation and relaxation exercises. I just took 10mg of the pred. I think I will stay with that dosage.
