Prednisone Reviews

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.

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.

Ardosons and Alcohol interaction

CAN YOU DRINK ALCOHOL OR BEER WHILE TAKING ARDOSONS? I WANT TO KNOW BECAUSE I AM PLANNING TO TAKE IT. ## Where can I buy Ardosons or a similar medicine in the USA (Chicago area)? Thanks. ## Ardosons is listed as containing Betamethasone, Methocarbamol, and Indomethacin, this combination is not available in the U.S. LANDI, the Indomethacin is a nonsterdoial anti-inflammatory that has been known to cause stomach irritation, ulceration, and increased risk of bleeding at side effects according to FDA reports, so it it would be best not to indulge in alcoholic beverages, while taking it, since alcohol can worsen these side effects. Ref: Indomethacin Information Are you on any other medications?

I did the inserting with a 4hr margin because there was no blood, after about 2 hours after last insert, I experienced light bleeding and minor cramps, I had just 1 blood clot.

3 weeks after taking misoprostol and still bleeding

Please I took two tablets of misoprostol orally and two vaginally after tested positive of three weeks pregnant. I had heavy bleeding for the first one week and reduce afterwards. In the second week it , I started bleeding again which I think increased. Am now 3 weeks now and still bleeding with abdominal pains. I change pads only in the morning and evening .What can I do to stop it or its normal ? ## Sorry to hear about your challenge - in this case I think you should seek medical attention since you are still bleeding. This may or may not indicate some other problem but it would be best for a doctor to check. ESPECIALLY since you are also having abdominal pains ... you would want to rule out infection or anything else. I hope this helps and wish you the best! ## Thanks alot. I would l...

Expired Diclofenac

I have diclofenac that was prescribed late 2006 but has no expiry date, is it still safe to use? ## Hello, Bob! How are you? I'm not sure how your country handles drug laws and expiration dates, so I can only provide you with information that I am familiar with from the U.S. FDA. From their efficacy studies, when left in the original factory sealed containers, it was found to retain full efficacy for 3 years, but once that container was opened and it was dispensed in a pharmacy/chemist's container that exposes it to the elements that cause degradation, that efficacy could only be guaranteed for one year. it was not, however, found to become dangerous after the expiration date, but after so many years, it is most likely worthless and you should just dispose of it. ## Diclofenac s...

Did I overdose on Prednisone?

I was prescribed Prednisone (60MG) 3x daily for 7 days and was supposed to take one every 8 hours 3x daily. But instead I took one every 4-5 hours unknowingly for 5 days...straight I stopped taking them after the 5th day. Because I got panic attacks and migraines. I've been off Prednisone for 5 days now and have been feeling the worst anxiety of my life...I cannot control it or calm myself down and I've been having physical weakness and extreme fatigue and stress. Should I be worried? ## You need to notify the prescribing doctor and explain exactly what has happened. When you start taking Prednisone, the body stops making cortisol on it's own. The two things you mention, headaches and panic, are side effects of the Prednisone. If Prednisone is not tapered down properly it ca...
