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. Because it suppresses the immune system, it leaves patients more susceptible to infections.

Skin rash, shoulder and arm pain, difficulty swallowing
Hello, my wife began a rash on her hand that spread to the arm and then the other arm, neck, and upper chest. Deep pain and weakness began about 2 weeks into the rash. Doctors were consulted in Comoros where we live, blood tests done. Even the doctors said testing is not good here so we traveled to Nairobi. 2 doctors, several blood tests and meds later she is still not well. Latest doc says muscle infection and prescribed Prednisone and Nexium. We are concerned about steroid side effects. Doc prescribed these because of a CPK level of 616. Thank you for any advice!

How are you feeling? What type of doctor have you been seeing? Have you let them know that the current medication regimen isn't helping your pain? Why are you taking the Prednisone? That could actually make some pain issues worse.

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...

Can Somebody Help Find A Doctor In New Jersey That Will Prescribe Pain Medication For Me I Have Severe Rheumatoid Arthritis Through My Body And Perman
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...
