Prednisone and abrupt withdrawl

I have been on 15mg Prednisone now for 10 months and my team of specialists want me to quit cold turkey will this cause issues for me? I tried to reduce down to 13mg a while back but suffered severe back oain and confusion after only reducing by 2mg... ## Lani --- i don't think its a good idea to go off Prednisone cold turkey. Your adrenal system needs to adjust slowly -- reducing by 11/2 to 2 mg a week would be better until your down to 5 mg. Then you might be able to stop cold turkey. ## I actually agree but today they went ahead and did it anyway so I am no longer allowed to have any prednisone. My blood pressure has dropped and I tried to use a zimmer frame to walk with (because I was dizzy and light headed and the lower back pain was horrendous) and that was fine until I sat on...

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...

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...

Prednisone Drug Information

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? ## Although I would have your doctor confirm this - In most cases, the term "twice a day" usually refers to having one pill every 12 hours (morning and evening). I believe it is mainly to help keep the medication in your system for as long as possible, throughout the course of 24hrs. Are they extended-release capsules? I hope this helps! ## Can anyone suggest me an exercise to make my hip muscle strong? I am suffering from "Inward Knee Collapse". I learned that i need to strengthen my hip muscles. ## When it say take 2 tablets by mouth daily for 5 day it mean I can ta...

Obeclox and weight loss

I've just been on prednisone treatment and I can't seem to shed the pounds I gained due to taking the steroids for a temporal diseased I suffered. I was wondering if taking Obleclox would help me feel less hungry and with a healthy diet and exercise be able to go back to my original weight. Does anyone know if taking this pill is safe? Thanks for your help!! ## Obeclox contains the active ingredient Clobenzorex, which is available in the U.S. only by prescription. There is no medication that is really safer than any other, they all come with risks and dangers. For some people it has been very effective for weight loss, but not for everyone, which is the way any medication works. This is a stimulant that is used to help suppress appetite. It can cause side effects, such as: nause...

Prednisone affecting my 1-dose Methadone maintenance

Hello. I'm an addict in recovery, using the methadone maintenance as the way to wean off opiates. I currently take 1 95mg dose (methadone) in the morning, and I'm weaning down 2mg/month. I also have spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease and major lumbar pain. I take only Aleve for pain, as I'm told the methadone will not help me because I only take 1 single dose/day and not for pain management. I have had 2 surgeries on my back. A simple laminectomy, but my 2nd surgery was spinal fusion surgery. I have a metal cage in my lower back, but now; I need a 3rd surgery to repair the discs higher on my spine, as all the pain has returned and my very well-respected doctor highly suggests this. He ordered a series of steroidal epidural shots in my back. I did the 1st round of sho...

Prednisone To Treat Dizziness

I am prescribed Prednizone to treat dizziness - possibly an inner ear infection. Prednizone causes dizziness as well, doesn't it? ## Prednisone is a steroid class medication and yes, it can cause it as a side effect, but only for the duration of time you are using it. And it isn't really used to treat the dizziness, but it can treat any swelling that is caused by the infection that may be causing the dizziness.

I have a nebuliser at home, as advised by my doctor. I use inhalers. Once in 45 days, the suffering worsened and then i was put on Predmet 16 (tapering off way). My regular exercise is a 45 min walk in a park. I am non smoker, but do have alcohol. Will the use of Predmet every 45 days (ave) put me in a high risk zone? ## Hello, Sambuddha! How are you doing?

High doses of Prednisone for 3 1/2 months

I had to take high doses of prednisone for 3 1/2 months to breathe. I never took opioids with prednisone or in the physical condition I’m in after getting hit with the effects of 9/11 4-5 years ago. For the first time in my life I had extreme memory issues, and I think the time to worry is when it hits your finances which can make you very careful and you lose every single thing you put down especially if you just moved again since my house didn’t sell, it has been more than a nightmare and I am thrilled to see my neurologist tomorrow and ask many questions including the reasons I feel like a throwaway at the World Trade Center when no one cared to look when I lost 46 pounds in one month and instead of having skin hanging from the bottom of my own that hangs from where my bi...

54 343 pill

I thought that this pill was prednisone, the pill marked 54/343? ## Hello, Carol! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Roxane Laboratories and they list it as containing 5mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, so this is a generic for Percocet. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## No, thank you very much.
