Can I still take them at this time after 3 yrs. ## Hello, Sissy! How are you? This medication doesn't become dangerous, once expired, but it does lose efficacy over time, so they will not work as well as they did, when new. It would be best to dispose of them. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this steroid as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, acne and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

Over dosage prednisone

Accidentally, took 40 mg. of prednisone. How do I taper off the drug now? ## Hi Judy, If you overdosed on your medication and are concerned about the possible ramifications of having done so, I would encourage you to call the American Association of Poison Control at: 1 (800) 222-1222. Better safe than sorry, right? As far as a tapering plan goes, this is really something you and your doctor should work closely on developing in order to ensure that the instructions are tailored to your medical history and other pertinent/personal information. There is no one size fits all when it comes to starting or stopping any medication. I just hope you're feeling alright by now.

9 Replies RSS
I am a 64 yr. old woman with severe rheumatoid arthritis & damage in my spine including stenosis in two areas of my spine-neck & lower back. Most doctors are unwilling to prescribe pain medication that will relieve my pain. Would appreciate names of doctors who can help me. ## Well, you aren't going to have any choice but to go through pain management, due to the new laws. They make it so that a general practitioner, or surgeon will only be able to prescribe pain medications for short-term use, such as for a couple of weeks immediately after someone has had surgery or been in an accident. Learn more pain management details here. In reality, most general doctors really aren't comfortable prescribing such medications, because they aren't trained in how to actually hand...

Ear Disaster

I got my ears pierced 3 months ago with medical grade plastic system due to metal allergies then my left ear began to get irritated, bleed, pus and lost of pain & very dark on back side of ear. I got antibiotics but then my entire ear began to burn, itch and pain to touch & I couldn't touch or move my earlobe without it seeming to activate this weird filling of fullness inside my ear canal. My entire ear and lope was extremely swollen & two doc's confirmed major swelling on the inside of my ear. I used antibiotic ear drops but not much help. I am thinking the antibiotics helped with the possible earlobe infection cause that is tremendously better with the exception of just not being able to move it much for fear of the inner part of the canal getting that weird feeli...
