Prednsione evil side effects
2 Replies RSS
I want to know if anyone is living with someone, anyone like me: I have a husband who have been on Prednisone for over 6 months due to an undiagnosed breathing condition. It helps him breath so we are thankful for that, but that's IT! Now the new Dr. has him tapering down, per my request, thank goodness. Meanwhile, I still live in hell. I don't know my husband anymore. His personality is gone, his sense of humor gone. What I do have is: constant anger over nothing, anything, fights with me over the stupid things in life that makes every day a living hell. Just when I think maybe he is in a ok mood, bam something changes. He is miserable and so am I. I just don't know how couples survive this medication together. Any advice would be so greatly appreciated, as walking away fro...

i'm 33, male and was in the er for heat exposure and inhalation injury. how long will the side effects last and what other side effects might i expect? ## Hello, Adam! How are you? The typical side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, acne, fluid retention, nervousness and insomnia. It may take a couple weeks for them all to go away. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Being on prednisone for only 5 days should not cause any side affects, if so they should go away when you finish taking it. ## That's not true, Roy. One can have side effects from Prednisone and other steroids after taking one dose. Just an fyi. ## My asthma specialist prescrided a huge dose of prednisolne 100mg for 3 days 75,50,25 all for 3 days. He calls it a cl...

I have been prescribed prednisone 20mg And directed to take 2 tablets daily for 5 days I am 17 male and 158lbs. Do I take 1 tablet each 12 hours or do I take the 2 tablets together each day as one?? ## Although I would have your doctor confirm this - In most cases, the term "twice a day" usually refers to having one pill every 12 hours (morning and evening). I believe it is mainly to help keep the medication in your system for as long as possible, throughout the course of 24hrs. Are they extended-release capsules? I hope this helps! ## can anyone suggest me an exercise to make my hip muscle strong I am sufferring from "Inward Knee Collapse".I learnt /that ineed to streghten my Hip Muscles. ## When it say take 2 tablets by mouth daily for 5 day it mean I can take 2 tables...

Tapering off APO-Prednisone
1 Reply RSS
My doctor started me on apo-prednisone 5mg for a rash all over my body and scalp. My plan is to start with 10 pills then taper by one pill every second day down to zero! How many days should I actually be on these then if tapered properly? ## Hello, Sheryl! How are you doing? That would be a total of 10 days, on the 11th day, you should be out and not have any pills left to take. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, fluid retention, acne, insomnia, nervousness, and elevated blood pressure. Is there anything else I can help with?

Excedrine and predizone
1 Reply RSS
I was prescribed 20 mg predizone for my hands. I started taking them yesterday. I only took one o at 4: 00 pm. Now its 6/3/17 at 8: 07 am. I have a headache. My question is, can I take one excedrine now and then at 4: 00 take my next dose of predizone.? ## Generally, the FDA recommends that you not take the Excedrin with Prednisone, due to the Aspirin in it and the fact that it can compound the gastrointestinal issues that both risk causing as side effects, such as nausea, bleeding, and ulcers. If your doctor approves, it might be better to just stick with Tylenol/Acetaminophen, while you are taking the prednisone. Is there anything else I can help with?

I was given amox-clav 875mg 2 times a day for a upper respiratory infection. Along with prednisone. I am on day 3 I am still running a low grade temperature and coughing. Is it not working? Should I go back to the dr or give is more time. I have had pneumonia before when I was very young. ## How are you feeling, now? Has there been any change? It can take several days for the antibiotic to reach its full level of efficacy in your body and for you to see if it will work for you. Additionally, they can sometimes cause cough and fever and side effects, according to FDA reports. You could also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash.
