What Is The Use Of Predmet Tablet

Sambuddha Says:

I'm a 58 yr old male, suffering from COPD, living in Calcutta in India. My city is highly polluted. I have been suffering from Asthma for 25 yrs. It is in the family. 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?

Well, you shouldn't take it, unless your doctor instructs you to do so. But, sometimes with these breathing issues, it is needed rather frequently. My mother-in-law has a standing order for Prednisone, due to her asthma and how often it acts up.

The U.S. FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, acne, fluid retention and weight gain.

As to frequent use, yes, it could cause some health issues, so your doctor should be monitoring you regularly, if you have to take it that often.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I am still COPD and still on Predmet 16 once every 45 days . What I have learned is that it has a bad effects of any steroid , weight gain , brittle bones etc but have the plus point of allowing you to breath when you are choking to death.
So my love affair with Predmet 16 continues . Please come up with some suggestions.
Life saving suggestions.
regards , Sambuddha

Just to add, CIMS states that the active ingredient of Predment is actually Methylprednisolone. This is a corticosteroid drug used in treating a wide variety of conditions.
