Prednisone Overview

Prednisone is a synthetic corticosteroid drug that is particularly effective as an immunosuppressant drug. It is used to treat certain inflammatory diseases (such as moderate allergic reactions) and (at higher doses) some types of cancer, but has significant adverse effects.

prednisone 20 mg (Too scared to start taking it, is it as bad as its reputation?)
What should I expect when taking one 20 mg of Prednisone daily for 14 days, and when should I taper off of it? ## Actually, if you're taking it for fewer than 21 days. there is no need to taper, unless your doctor has specified otherwise. And what reputation are you speaking of? It can cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and fluid retention, but the bigger risks are usually only associated with long-term use. ## Prescribed prednisone for arthritis symptoms (20 mg). What are the risks of dependence on this drug? What is it like to discontinue?

how to take prednisone 10 mg
if the bottle says take 6 tablets a day for two days, then 5 tablets a day for two days, then 4 tablets a day for two days, then 3 tablets a day for 2 days, then 2 tablets a day for 2 days, then 1 tablet a day for two days, then 1/2 a tablet a day for two days. ## You should follow the instructions exactly as on the label, tapering is essential to prevent complications from withdrawing too fast, since this is a steroid class medication. You can take them all at once, or split them up throughout the day, taking them all at once may cause more side effects, such as nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and headache. Is there anything else I can help with?

Prednisone 10mg tabs for poison ivy
Supposed to take 6 tabs in 24 hours first day But I took 4 tabs already in 6 hours Should I be worried ? ## Hello, Liz! How are you doing? No, they can be split into separate doses or taken altogether. However, taken so many very close together might increase the nausea and dizziness that can be side effects. You may also experience fluid retention, rapid heart rate and insomnia. Is there anything else I can help with?
