expired prednisone
1 Reply RSS
I have bronchitis and I have prednisone, but it expired 10/15/15. Is It still ok to take? ## This medication does not become dangerous, once expired, but it does start to lose efficacy, so it may not work as well as it did, when it was new. Thus, it would be best to dispose of it and see your doctor for a new supply, if required. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, acne, fluid retention, and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with?

It's coming to the end of my 3rd day without prednisone.I was only suppose to take 40mg for 5 days. However I don't metabolize medicines well & the side effects were way too rough on me.

is it safe to take prednisone while taking hydrocodone 5 325
3 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? ## I'm on oxycodone 15mg. I've been taking them for years. I want a heavy dose...

tapering off predisone
3 Replies RSS
Hi, my teenage daughter has been taking 40mgs for a little over a month. The doctor is now tapering her off. We are currently at 25. In the process she has had pseudoseizures and passing out. Could this be caused from the prednisone??? She has had every diagnostic done so it's not epilepsy. She suffers from GI problems. She had a colonoscopy done in dec and had inflammation in her colon. Thank you. ## Hello, Alicia! How is your daughter doing? Fainting can be due to withdrawal syndrome, which can occur in some people, even if they are tapering off of steroids and aren't stopping them abruptly, as reported by the NIH. However, after research, I've not seen anything about pseudoseizures. Is she on any other medications? Has she ever experienced them before? ## No she hasn'...
