Prednisone 20mg

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...

1 Reply RSS
I'm a 58 yr old male, suffering from COPD, living in Calcutta in India. My city is highly polluted. I have been suffering from Asthma for 25 yrs. It is in the family. I have a nebuliser at home, as advised by my doctor. I use inhalers. Once in 45 days, the suffering worsened and then i was put on Predmet 16 (tapering off way). My regular exercise is a 45 min walk in a park. I am non smoker, but do have alcohol. Will the use of Predmet every 45 days (ave) put me in a high risk zone? ## Hello, Sambuddha! How are you doing? Well, you shouldn't take it, unless your doctor instructs you to do so. But, sometimes with these breathing issues, it is needed rather frequently. My mother-in-law has a standing order for Prednisone, due to her asthma and how often it acts up. The U.S. FDA lis...

i am on prednisone for 5 years . taping up and down 40mg to 5 mg . when i am on 5 mg i became very sick and i am going back to 40 mg again . i am trying to stay on 5 mg and slowly become prednisone free. is anyone there took a prednisone so long and now free from prednisone? i would appreciate all your answers. thanks . sorry for my mistakes english is not my primery language. ## Hello, Pandora! How are you? Yes, there are those who have stopped it after taking it for a long period of time, but it usually requires a slow, careful taper under doctor's supervision. The FDA warns that a sudden withdrawal could result in health complications, including adrenal insufficiency, so it is best to be careful and follow your doctor's advice. Is there anything else I can help with?

How long do side effects of prednisone last?

I have hives from taking prednisone. My mouth also feels torn up, and some minor throat irritation. I was on the meds for 6 days. When will the hives dissapear, and other symptoms? Anyone have this experience? ## If you developed hives from taking it, there is a good chance that you had an allergic reaction to this medication, as reported by the FDA, and if that is the case, you will have to avoid taking it in the future, because such allergic reactions tend to get worse, with repeated exposure. Have you had your doctor check it out for you? A couple years ago, I discovered the hard way that I was allergic to the antibiotic Bactrim and it took several weeks for all of the symptoms to finally clear up.

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...

Celiac here. Is qualitest generic prednisone 10mg tablet GLUTEN FREE? ## Hello, Pirate! How are you? What are the markings on it? I'm sorry, but so far, I've not found a 10mg one listed from Qualitest/Vintage. Sometimes, the company listed on the label is just a licensed distributor and the tablet could actually be manufactured by a different company. Can you please post back with these additional details? That would enable me to check the inactive ingredients for you. Thanks! ## I have the same question and the markings are V on the pill. Does this have any gluten containing ingredients? ## Does the prednisone 10 mg have gluten in it? The pill marking is 50/93 on one side then a V on the other side. Thank you.
