I have been prescribed prednisone 20mg. And am directed to take 2 tablets daily for 5 days. I am male and weigh 158lbs. Do I take 1 tablet every 12 hours or do I take the 2 tablets together each day as one?

After taking prednisone as per my MD's request, I observed that I retain lot of fluids, most particularly on my stomach and I feel very heavy while walking. How do I get rid of fluid retention after taking prednisone?

Stand behind your kitchen chair with your feet together. Start with righ keg and kick out to the side 15x 2 times a day starting out. Do the same on your left leg. Kick to the left. Now back to your right leg ( standing straight) kick you foot(leg) back 15 x. Same with the left. You will immediately feel the hip muscles at work. Work your way up to as many as 30 if you can. Then there is squats. Pretty self explanatory. Bend your knees and swat down then back up. Great for hips and thighs. That’s probably enough for now. I am in Physical Therapy and these are just a couple of hip/thigh muscle strengthens. Hope it works for you.

I have had to take prednisone quite a few times for asthma. The usual directions are to take it in the morning so you can sleep at night. although it seems your doc would have prescribed 40 mg tabs if that were the case. Check with your doc.

I've taken 5mg x6 prednisone for 5 days. Will there be any lasting side effects? I stopped taking them as I was frightened of side effects. Pounding heart, pains in my gut and weird emotions.

I took one 20mg prednisone and felt like I had taken diet pills. My heart pounded while talking but I felt great. Is this safe? I have a stent. I then took half of a pill and had a terrible burning sensation in my stomach.

I'm trying to find information on the better brands of generic Prednisone. Currently taking Prednisone made by a company called Cadista and am not impressed with its effectiveness.
