small white round pill with z 2907 on it ## There is no definitive way to say what Prednisone looks like, the way it looks can ary greatly by manufacturer, there are no guidelines saying that all pills containing a certain med have to look the same. They can vary in size, color, shape and imprint. The only guidelines for pills from the FDA says the imprints have to be unique for identification purposes. Even these differ from company to company and according to the dosage of the pill. Now, as to this pill, Z 2907 is Furosemide 40mgs. Pill Image It is a generic for the diuretic Lasix, this helps to increase the amount of uring a person passes to help the body lose water and salt to help treat high blood pressure. ## what does prednisolone look like ## how to take prednisone 10mg i dont u... ...

So if you're still unable to determine whether the cause is stress or medication related, it would still be wise to contact your doctor in the meantime just to play it safe. He/she may then suggest that you stop taking the medication until further notice. Ref: nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a601102.html#side-effects When it comes to many of these types of side effects, ... ...

Seniors on Prednisone

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... ...

IF I TAKE LOW DOSE PREDNISONE FOR PMR, HOW CAN I AVOID MOONFACE AND WEIGHT GAIN? ## Don t know if this will happen or not, but prednisone, causes rises in blood sugar, you may have to keep a check on it an may require insulin, I m no Dr. just a hillbilly, speak with your Dr. in regards to this info. ## Martha, I've been on prednisone for 4 years for Polymyalgia, starting with very high dosage, but now down to 10 mgs. per day. The moon face may have gone down a little, but I look nothing like I did before I started the prednisone. At this point, I am still puffy faced, puffy belly, puffy back, and have bruises all over my arms and hands. The least little bump causes a bruise and/or the skin to peel as the skin becomes very thin. Of course, with all the ugly side effects, depression i... ...

Will I incur bad side effects from only 9 days of use? ## Hi gina, Honestly, there's really no telling when or if you might ever end up experiencing certain side effects from taking this medication. And although some people are more prone than others due to their body chemistry, it's generally not something that can easily be predicted, if that's what you're asking? On another note, you may want to have a look at prednisone's list of possible side effects (linked below) to help give you an idea of what signs/symptoms to be aware of throughout the duration of your treatment: nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a601102.html#side-effects Do you feel like you've been responding well to the medication, thus far? ## Yes my case of sumac was/is really bad but my eyes ... ...

West Ward Prednisone 5 Mg Tablet
2 Replies RSS
I have trouble telling the difference between my 25 mg tablet of metoprolo by Ranbaxy and my 5 mg tablet of prednisone by West-Ward. How can I easily tell the difference when in my pill case? ## Take a closer look at the imprints on them, the imprints are on the tablets and usually placed on most prescriptions labels, as well. The 25mg Metoprolol from Ranbaxy should have the marking RE 79 on it. The 5mg Prednisone has the marking WEST-WARD 475. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Just because you're taking generics doesn't mean that you cannot ask for the same generic company for your meds. Perhaps you could ask your doc to Rx both meds from the same generic company. The Metropolol and the pred 5 from Ranbaxy (for example) do not look alike. ...

Need Help with Lingering Side Effects of Prednisone
1 Reply RSS
I am a 30 year old female and in the beginning of March 2013 I got terribly sick with some sort of cold paired with a severe sinus infection. I was prescribed Methylprednisolone 4mg dose pack. I completed that with only minor side effects however it didn't really work and I was back at the doctor a mere week later feeling just as bad. I was then prescribed Prednisone 20mg tablets, taking 3 daily for 5 days. It helped my symptoms and I felt better. However, my last dose was Sunday 3/17/2013 and today is Wednesday 3/20/2013 and I am feeling incredibly strange. I feel weak, tired, irritable, depressed, dizzy and light-headed at times, off balance and I am getting mild headaches. I'm also moody and have a short temper. From looking online it looks like these are some of the devastat... ...

Im an 18 year old Male, supposed to be a fun time being 18 and all….but boy has prednisolone stuffed up my last year or so. Maybe i just react worse to this drug than some people, but the way its hit me has to be lived to be believed. The irritable uncomfortable feeling (even when your trying to relax on the couch), the anger and mood swings that are constant, the weight gain and wanting to eat all the time, the insomnia which makes you feel even worse for lack of sleep, the gigantic swelling in the face to make a once normal face a horror show, the fever which is so often there, the acne all over my body, the lack of confidence I now have, the depressing way you now interact with the ones you love, and one of the worst things to go through, the looking back and remembering how go... ...
