Hi Boa,

Unfortunately there are no drugs or medications that match the name "comneslone", so I was unable to get any results searching for it.

Is this something you ordered from overseas?

I saw another thread on here a while back, where someone ordered prednisone, but was actually sent something called comneslone instead. However like I said, it doesn't appear to be a real drug name. So unless it's an uncommon medication from a foreign country, I see no other reason why it wouldn't turn up in any search engines.

Does anyone else recognize this drug?

Yes Comneslone is Prednisolone IP 20. Manufactured by Combitic Global Caplet Pvt. Ltd. It's Generic.

No it isn't. I got caught with this. am very familiar with Prednisolone (aka. Solone). I have been prescribed it for back pain - short term use. But doctors are very nervous about prescribing corticosteroids for quite good reasons - many people have problems with side effects. Mania is typical and can be positive or negative. A simple search will show them all.

I had a very positive experience of the drug but my GP wouldn't co-operate. After a year without, another GP diagnosed Polymyalgia and was happy to prescribe it with careful management. It's a 'magic bullet' for that disorder. In the intervening period, I tried everything. Including buying on the internet from a website that appeared to be based in Canada but supplied from India. I ordered Prednisolone 20's but received Comnesolone 20 which they assured was just a different generic branding. They also threw in a couple of 'Viagra' tabs as well! :-)

The 'Viagra' appeared to be a couple of oval tablets dyed blue - broken in half they we white inside. They had no effect. The Comnesolone was certainly NOT Prednisolone. It had no effect on my general back pain, specific Polymyalgic pain or mood. It did cause insomnia and loose bowels, typical effects of Prednisolone, but those effects were different in character. I persisted for two weeks in case it was a slightly different compounding or strength. My conclusion was that while it was some form of active drug, it was not what I ordered and I have no idea what it would treat. I attempted to complain but...that's a hundred dollars I'll never see again. It's nice to be back on the real thing.

I purchased some 20mg and, if anything, they are stronger and longer lasting than the generic stuff I get from the VA

I ordered prednisolone 20 as I had been on them off the gp for a chest infection and noticed that all my back pain and fibromyalgia symptoms had gone. I asked my gp for them for my back and they said no. So I ordered them off the Internet and got comneslone 20. I have been taking one every day for over a month. They work fire me and give alk the same side effects as the proper steroid tablets give you. I now have the fast, round face that you get with cushings syndrome. I went to my gp and they have told me i have got to come off them as the side effects are really bad, so I am being weaned off them. I am down to 10th per day now and next week I will be on , then off them altogether. I have actually still got some left and u have a 5 day holiday coming up so I am going to take them for the five days and stop again. I just want a pain free holiday. I have been on so many medications and nothing has ever got rid of the pain like these have. They really are a miracle tablet.

I'm surprised that some had a good response to Comnesolone - it lacked in all ways for me compared to Prednisolone/Solone. It may be a problem with a generic version - I've experienced an unpleasant reaction to a generic in the past compared to the name brand. But I doubt it. One very distinctive characteristic of Prednisolone is that it has a most unpleasant, bitter taste - so much so that I have to be careful to flush it down my throat quickly. Comnesolone lacked that taste almost entirely.
My suspicions were raised as well by the free' Viagra' tabs - clearly fakes.

Do not be afraid of Prednisone (comnisolone) for an extended time period as it is the only thing that will help PMR. 20mg should be sufficient on a daily basis. Take a calcium / D supplement to keep your bones strong, but the bad side effects of corticosteroids are vastly overly feared. Wean down to the lowest dose that has an impact and stick with it. 15mg works for many as does 10 for PMR.

"Is it dangerous to take them"? Yes it is and steroids should only be used in a life or death situation. I would suggest that you do some heavy research on these drugs and gain some knowledge. I'm not trying to be mean. Prednisone and other steroids have ruined many peoples lives. Be careful.
