white egg shaped pill with p120 on one side

Believe it may be 20mg prednisolone for a dog ## Hi Patrick, Are there any other imprints on your pill that may have been faded or are difficult to make out? I only ask because based on the description provided, the closest match I could find was a white oval shaped pill marked with "GF P120" and a score line. This particular tablet is an OTC cold remedy containing 600mgs of Guaifenesin + 120mgs of Pseudoephedrine. Another similar match that comes up is a round white pill marked with "P120" and nothing else. Although this one is a 325mg Aspirin tablet. Just out of curiosity, what information leads you to believe that it may contain 20mgs of prednisolone? I'm not seeing any specific details online relating to that, and also wonder if it might be something that's n...

Short Term Prednisolone Withdrawal

I was prescribed a 40 mg dosepak and tapered over the course of 7 days for dermatitis. At day 5 it was clear that the dosage was too low and it was failing. I was then prescribed a 60 mg tapering dose that was 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10, 10. On day 5 I had a violent gastric reaction to the dose so I discontinued at that point leaving the last two 10, 10 doses. About 36 hours later I started to express symptoms of prednisolone withdrawal, which makes sense as it takes about that long for it to purge from a body. Symptoms were right down the check list. Severe drowsiness, aches, pains, mild fever, rash on forearms, acne forming on my back. Did some research but could find little guidance on how to proceed for reactions to short term dose withdrawal. Should I just ride it out? Some seemed to s...

Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Verwon. Please let me know the difference between prednisolone an...
