I feel like I've just had a double mocha from Starbucks and it is after 1am.  Do steroids keep you awake?  I took a huge dose of steroids today because my lungs are yucky.

Yes, they do. They increase your sympathetic nervous system; such as your heart rate. Good luck!

Oh Yes! I am on some too for my back and I didn't know this was one of the side effects. My doctor gave me the methadol packets or something like that it's cortisone though!
