Omnacrotil contais the active ingredient Prednisolone, this is a type of steroid.

If you have diabetes, it does need to be used with caution, since it can elevate blood sugar levels, so you shouldn't continue using it, without first consulting your doctor.

Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, water retention and weight gain.

I am suffering of alopecia from last 12 months, my dermatologies prescribe me omnacortil 20 for treatment since it started.
So i think by taking one pill regularly, i have taken up too much dosage till now, but alopecia is not totally cure. but the thing that afraid me much is that is this medicine *(omnacortil20) is having some other serious side effect on critical bodypart like kidney or heart or lungh.
should i have to stop taking it now?

No, those are not the only side effects it can have. The complete possible side effect list for any medication can be quite large, so I only listed some of the most common and then included the link to the medication monograph. On that page, you can read more of the details on it and its effects.


And almost any medication can have detrimental effects on your organs, if used for a long-period of time. However, using it for about a month or less is not considered long-term use and most people won't experience any problems with it.

When they speak of long-term use of a medication, they are usually referring to people that have been taking it for several years.

If you are still concerned, don't be afraid to talk to your doctor about it.

Is there anything else I can help with?

My father had a pace maker placed in his body due to low pulse rate in 2009. Few days later he started complaining of pain in his hands & legs so we consulted the cardiologist who did the operation. He said that it was nothing to do with pace maker as it was placed properly.

We then consulted a general physician & he suggested to start taking pain killer (Naprosyn) & steroid (Omnacortil). He said that my dad was suffering from collagen disorder & he recommended doses like 2.5/5/10/20 Mg when there is a severe pain.

My dad has been taking steroid since then & has gained a lot of weight with swelling on his face and hands (which are side effects of steroid only). We also consulted a neurologist after recommendation from a general physician suspecting that it is a neurological issue. After getting several tests done it was discovered that there is no nerve blockage. All blood test have been normal along with nerve conduction study.

Test reports indicated minor issue with cervical spine & some vitamin/calcium deficiency.

At this point we have consulted another physician from AIIMS and he recommended to continue dose of steroid since there is no alternate when there is severe pain. Also he mentioned that consumption of steroid cannot be stopped all of a sudden.

At this point the problem has not been diagnosed since all test have been normal. Physician from AIIMS has been suggested to start taking anti-allergic medicine along with a injection twice a week for strenth.

My dad has been lately complaining of stress in the brain, high BP and doctor even said that sugar level can rise with consumption of steroid. What other effects can be seen with this ? How can we avoid taking steroid after knowing the disastrous side effects ?

Can you recommend a physician we can consult & if you have heard of similar situation before ?

my daughter named sudiksha 2 yr old is suffering from nephrotic syndrome, as she is advised from the doctor to take omnacortil 25 mg a day as the edema recovers and the albumin level is nil. so we continued for quite a long time, but still she is not recovered , as she is getting 2 to 3 times of relapse, so when ever she gets relapse we need to start the steroids and stop it. so what all the actual side effects which she will undergo later stage, please brief me about this.
