tapering the prednisone
1 Reply RSS
I went down from 30mg of prednisone to 20mg for a month. My doctor is tapering off the prednisone by 10mg each month. When will I be back to normal? ## Most likely, a few weeks after you have finally completely stopped taking it. The typical side effects, according to the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, acne, irritability, nervousness, and insomnia. How are you feeling, now? Why were you taking it for so long? Are you on any other medications?

is it safe to take prednisone while taking hydrocodon 5 325
2 Replies RSS
is it safe to take prednisone while taking hydrocodone acetaminophen 5-325? ## @dovieann, I searched for possible interactions via The University of Maryland's drug interaction tool and haven't seen any discrepancies listed between Prednisone and Hydrocodone/APAP. So based off that information alone, I'd say there shouldn't be any problems using the two together outside of their own individual side effects. However in my opinion, it would still be wise to inform your doctor before taking any, just to play it safe. I hope this helps! ## Thankyou! Have been having headaches and gastritus with prednisone. Just started last tgursday 10 mg a day. Do these side affects go away after a while?

prednisone dosage 4 mg. tablets

Yikes. I accidentally took all my first day of Methylprednisolone pills at one time. Will I be ok? ## Hello, Ann! How are you? Did you experience any adverse effects? Usually, they are only spaced out to try to help minimize the side effects, as listed by the FDA, they may include nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, and insomnia, so taking them all at once, may worsen those effects. The last time I was on this, my pharmacist flat out told me that it was fine to talk them, all at once, if I preferred, so I did. If I did so in the morning, then the worst of the side effects were worn off, by the time I was ready to go to bed. It's always best to double check with your doctor to be sure, though.

prednisone overdosage
1 Reply RSS
My doctor prescribed 20mg of Prednisone to be taken 3 (60mg) at a time once a day. I took my first dosage around 3:30pm and accidentally took another 3 tables (60mg) around 11:30pm the same day. Should I be worried? What should I do? Thanks. ## Hi Bob, In the event of an overdose I'd probably call my prescribing doctor immediately and leave a message at the very least... If I felt my life was in danger I would've also called poison control. If you are in the US, the number for American Association of Poison Control Centers is: 1 (800) 222-1222 and they can be reached 24/7, 365 days a year. But I guess the bottom line is, how are you feeling right now?

comneslone

Is comneslone 20 actually prednisone ## Hi Boa, Unfortunately there are no drugs or medications that match the name "comneslone", so I was unable to get any results searching for it. Is this something you ordered from overseas? I saw another thread on here a while back, where someone ordered prednisone, but was actually sent something called comneslone instead. However like I said, it doesn't appear to be a real drug name. So unless it's an uncommon medication from a foreign country, I see no other reason why it wouldn't turn up in any search engines. Does anyone else recognize this drug? ## Yes Comneslone is Prednisolone IP 20. Manufactured by Combitic Global Caplet Pvt. Ltd. It's Generic. ## No it isn't. I got caught with this. am very familiar with Prednis...
