Damaged skin due to persivate cream

I have been using persivate for almost a year and I wasn't aware of the side effects, but now my skin is darker, I have lots of pimples and rashes, it is itchy and dry... Please advise me on what to do. Any recommendations? ## I was also using persivate cream for more than 5 years. I stopped using it and I had pimples and my skin became dark. My face was itchy night and day then I decided to consult a skin specialist. Although it was very expensive but my skin is healing nicely. The doc told me that if you are using persivate you are damaging your skin. Whoever is continuing using this poison must stop honestly. ## Hi, I used persivate ointment last year to clear dark marks on my face n yes they did fade away but then i stopped using it and now my skin is worse than b4 the dark mark...

Looking to find out what this pill is, it's small, white, blank on one side and the other has a line through it with the letter N on top and a 5 on the bottom ## Hi Carol, The pill you have is Prednisone (5 mg). It is Canadian, and manufactured by a company called Novopharm. Prednisone is a synthetic corticosteroid drug that is particularly effective as an immunosuppressant, and affects virtually all of the immune system. It is used to treat certain inflammatory diseases and (at higher doses) cancers, but has significant adverse effects. To learn more information about Prednisone, please follow the link below...

tapering off predisone

Hi, my teenage daughter has been taking 40mgs for a little over a month. The doctor is now tapering her off. We are currently at 25. In the process she has had pseudoseizures and passing out. Could this be caused from the prednisone??? She has had every diagnostic done so it's not epilepsy. She suffers from GI problems. She had a colonoscopy done in dec and had inflammation in her colon. Thank you. ## Hello, Alicia! How is your daughter doing? Fainting can be due to withdrawal syndrome, which can occur in some people, even if they are tapering off of steroids and aren't stopping them abruptly, as reported by the NIH. However, after research, I've not seen anything about pseudoseizures. Is she on any other medications? Has she ever experienced them before? ## No she hasn'...

ambophyllina

Bought in Mexico, so in spanish ambophyllina must be. a small white pill with a line on one side down the middle. ## I use Ambophyllina. It is prescribed to me by a Doctor in Mexacali, Mexico. I use it to contol lung problems. What are the risks associated with the pill? ## My mother-in-law has taken this pill (Ambophyllina) for 20 years and it really helps her lung problems. She recently had to go without for 6 weeks and she has had a terrible time with really severe asthma. Today she was able to take the pill again and we are hoping the asthma attacks are over. ## Sorry, foreign pills are not regulated like American items are, and finding information on them is very difficult.

Prednisone and Soma

I just started a 10 day round of 10 mg of Prednisone 2x a day and I usually take either a Soma or an Alprazolam to help me sleep. Can I still take one of the meds to help me sleep? ## Hello Karen, Unfortunately if the doctor has not instructed you to continue taking the medication I would advise against it. Prescription medication should only be taken as the doctor has instructed. What I can tell you is that from what I read on the NIH drug interaction site predisone and soma do not have any listed interactions. Again I advise that you keep your doctor informed of all the medication that you will be taking and not to take chances with your health. I hope this information helps.

Prednisone double dose

Hi. I was prescribed 20mg of prednisone and took 40mg by accident. What should I do? ## Hello, Mariana! How are you? You should check in with your prescriber, to be sure, but in most cases, you would just continue taking it as prescribed. The FDA classifies the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, weight gain, acne and insomnia. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My Prednisone dosage was taken twice in one day instead of once. Should I skip tomorrow’s dose, which would be dose #2, then continue with the third dose? ## My boyfriend took 80mg of Prednisone yesterday instead of 40 mg and I don't know what to do.

Hcqs, lefumide and steroids

For over a month now I've have noticed dark spots on my gums and lips. They weren't there before. I want to know if the hcqs, lefumide or steroids (prednisone) have ever had any side effects like that? I have been taking these meds since 2014. Also, could too much exposure to sunlight whilst on the meds affect one's lips?

watson 5443

round orange pill with dan 2 times on one side and 5443 on one side ## Your question is a little confusing because in one place you have Watson 5443, and in another you have Dan Dan 5443. I am assuming it is Dan Dan 5443 because the other characteristics you list match. This is an anti-imflammatory, steroidal medication called Prednisone. It is used to reduce the imflammation in the joints, lungs, heart and many other types of imflammation. Side effects include ravenous hunger, insomnia, dizziness, among other side effects. ## Watson purchased the rights to manufacture this medication, so they are now listed as the manufacturer, and one of their licensed distributors is McKesson Packaging Services. NDC code: 63739-0588 They do list it as containing 20mgs of Prednisone, which is a steroi...

round peach v scored50/92

round peach pill one side v other side scored 50/92 ## Are you sure it doesn't say 50 93 or 50 94 instead of 50 92? If it does say v 50 92 then it is probably an older version of 20mg prednisone. This is a steroidal anti-imflammatory medication, used especially for joint imflammation and lung imflammation, among others. Side effects include ravenous hunger, insomnia, stomach pain, among others. The other possibility is that it says b 50 92. This would be naltroxone. A medication used to help people get off of opiates, to wean them off. ## McKesson Packaging Services lists this tablet as containing 20mgs of Prednisone. NDC code: 63739-0520 It is a steroid class medication that is used to treat allergic reactions, immune disorders. and swelling. Though they can vary depending on produ...

Prednisone 20 mg tablets twicea day

I am taking This medication for a sore inflammation area in my chest that I have seen a physical therapist for. He told me to work out to stretch the chest but to do push ups and everything still. My other doctor gave me the steroid pill to get rid of this inflammation. With this medication are you supposed to rest it or use the muscle more? I still have inflammation in that spot. This is Day 2 of the pill so after todayI have three more days of this medication. What do you think or recommend. Thank you for your time. ## Dan, It is likely that your physical therapist has instructed you to stretch the effected area so that you can get blood to fill the muscles and effectively "flush out" some of the infection. Resistance trainers do something similar to get rid of the lactic acid...

Prednisone 20mg tablet twice a day

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.

Prednisone 60mg

I took double dose of prednisone 60mg in one day 9 hours apart for sinus infection. Should I be worried? ## I was given a 24 hr prednisone shot yesterday to help with my tight chest and coughing. They prescribed 60 mg for 3 days as I had been taking 40mg 2 days prior. I would like to split the dosage so I don't cough at night. I am also taking albuterol in a nebulizer every 4 hrs as the inhaler was not working as good as the treatments in the doctor's office. Can I split the dosage to 30mg twice daily so I can get relief from coughing while trying to get some sleep? I haven't slept in 2 nights due to the coughing. ## Elaine, Prednisone is a glucocorticoid (adrenocortical steroid). Unfortunately I was not able to find any definitive information on exactly how much is consider...
