I have to start this in the morning, is this a lot at once I have to do this 2x a day for a bad cough. ( I have had it for 3 weeks) Also should I take a lower mg closer to time to get off it or what. I'm scarf to take this I took it before and it felt like my heart was going to jump out of my chest and had night sweats. Any one take this much a day? ## Hi Angie, I don't know if your cough is related to Asthma in any way, but for someone who is 12 years old and up, the dose for asthma is 40 mg orally every 12 hours. That being said, I don't think it is unsafe to be taking this much, however if it has made you feel ill in the past you may want to find an alternative.

Cant sleep while on this medication! Can I take a sleeping aid? Tyenol PM or advil PM ## Can't sleep on prednisone what can I take yo)to. help me ## I would recommend staying away from the Advil/Ibuprofen, because it is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and taking it with the Prednisone can seriously increase the risk of developing stomach problems, such as bleeding ulcers. There are, however, no interactions listed between taking the Prednisone, with the Tylenol PM, which contains Acetaminophen and Diphenhydramine, but you may want to double check that with your pharmacist to be certain. Are there any other questions or comments? ...

My husband died in our living room and I called 911. He was revived after they broke 3 ribs and had a major surgery and was hospitalized for weeks. When I panic I get short of breath. After Bill (husband) was taken to the hospital I had a panic attack and couldn't breathe. I called 911 and ended up in the hospital myself. At no time did anyone ask me about my history, what happened or anything. They just began giving me Prednisone. I had no idea what it was and took it. The take-down dose when I left the hospital was 20 mgms. three times a day for a certain period, then 10 mgms for another period and now I am down to 5 mgms per day and have been taking it for over a year. The hospital refuses to tell me what the dosage was when I was hospitalized but because of the 60 mgm daily take... ...

I was prescribed 20 mg of prednisone for an abnormal lump on my leg, i wasn't aware of any of the terrible side affects and took it the first day feeling quite moody and pretty much lost sense of time, when i went to bed my legs began to ache terribly and my heart wouldn't stop pounding. I didn't sleep much at all and when i did i experienced terrible and odd nightmares. I am supposed to take it for 5 days once a day, but i refuse to take anymore because i simply can't handle the side effects. I haven't taken my second dose... i feel okay since i haven't taken anymore but am afraid since i have read and heard how dangerous it is to suddenly stop taking a medication. Will only one days dosage affect me? Please help....... ## Hello, Mrs. Parsons! How are you doing?... ...

how long can you store these in your medicine closet before it is not safe to take them? ## Hello, Basil! How are you? If you are asking about a bathroom medicine chest, they should not be stored there, at all. They should be stored somewhere dark, cool and dry, like a kitchen cabinet or other closet that is away from heat, light and moisture. And they should not be kept past the expiration date on the bottle. All tablets eventually degrade and lost effectiveness. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

I felt for a lack of a word moody all day yesterday. And had insomnia last nite. Is there a better time to take the medication ## Hi, Itchypoo! Sorry about the side effects.

A 90 year old woman was diagnosed with penumonia about 4 weeks ago which required hospitalization. She was placed on an antibiotics was not getting any better. Was rushed by ambulance to the hospital for choking and was placed on prednisone of 50 mg/day for a week with a plan to have the prednisone decreased by 10mg/day every week there after, until weaned. She starts today with 20 mg(s)/day for the next week, but has not regained any of her energy. I am praying for a miracle that she will regain her strength, but it does not look very promising. Was the initial dose of 50mg/day too much for her system. Her pneumonia appears to have cleared up, but she is so short winded, fatigued, always wants to sleep and has lost interest in her usual activities. Prior to the pneumonia, was washing p... ...

I have some prednisone I got in 2005 are they still good 10 years later? ## Hi Kim, According a news article from the LA Times, many medications actually remain good for up to 20-40 years past the expiration date, depending on the substance and how they're stored. Harvard Medical School also has a very similar article stating that many medications are good well beyond the 10 year mark. Ref: I don't have a specific list of these exact medications, nor do I encourage taking something that's expired, but often times it seems that the date listed is based on mere speculation and not tested by manufacturers for efficacy past a certain time frame, even if it is still ok to take. Having said that, if 100% efficacy is important to you... ...

Prednisone 20mg can it cause a rash on your body
1 Reply RSS
I have a terrible rash on my neck, chest and spreading to my breasts. I am on 20 mg. of prednisone (reduced from 30 mg) and have been for almost a month. Could this rash be from the prednisone?? ## It might be, but I have to say that it's rather difficult to say, because there could be several reasons. Aside from the fact that there's always a chance of suddenly developing an allergy or sensitivity to something, regardless of how long you've been taking it or been exposed to it… These steroid medications also have an effect on your immune system, so it could have caused an allergy or sensitivity to something else to pop up.

I was diagnosed with Bells Palsy and was given prednisone to reduce inflammation. I was on 120mg for 3 days. Then 80 mg for 3 days. Then 40 mg for 3 days. Then 20 mg for 3 days. Then I was done. I have been off for a week now and within that week I have developed severe acne on my chest, back, neck, face, etc. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this? I have read acne can be a side effect, but most things I have read have came from people who were on prednisone for years or months. ## These steroid class medications tend to linger and continue to have effects in your body, for awhile, after you finish your course of treatment.
