Bret Bohn, last year an athletic, healthy field guide in Alaska, was prescribed prednisone (a synthetic corticosteroid known to cause insomnia, anxiety, mania, aggression, and confusion) following minor surgery. He re-entered the hospital, where he did not sleep for 24 days and his health declined rapidly. His parents’ efforts to remove him have resulted in a custody battle; he is now a ward of the state and diagnosed with a mental disorder.
