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. That being said, I don't think it is unsafe to be taking this much, however if it has made you feel ill in the past you may want to find an alternative.

Cant sleep while on this medication! Can I take a sleeping aid? Tyenol PM or advil PM ## Can't sleep on prednisone what can I take yo)to. help me ## I would recommend staying away from the Advil/Ibuprofen, because it is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and taking it with the Prednisone can seriously increase the risk of developing stomach problems, such as bleeding ulcers. There are, however, no interactions listed between taking the Prednisone, with the Tylenol PM, which contains Acetaminophen and Diphenhydramine, but you may want to double check that with your pharmacist to be certain. Are there any other questions or comments? ...

My husband died in our living room and I called 911. He was revived after they broke 3 ribs and had a major surgery and was hospitalized for weeks. When I panic I get short of breath. After Bill (husband) was taken to the hospital I had a panic attack and couldn't breathe. I called 911 and ended up in the hospital myself. At no time did anyone ask me about my history, what happened or anything. They just began giving me Prednisone. I had no idea what it was and took it. The take-down dose when I left the hospital was 20 mgms. three times a day for a certain period, then 10 mgms for another period and now I am down to 5 mgms per day and have been taking it for over a year. The hospital refuses to tell me what the dosage was when I was hospitalized but because of the 60 mgm daily take... ...

1 Reply RSS
I had a allergic reaction to some makeup or cream and had very swollen and red eyelids/skin. Was prescribed 8 pills of 20 mg prednisone to take 2x/day for 4 days. I look so much better after taking the 3 pills, can I just stop now or is it like an anibotic and I need to finish the course of the pills? Kind of want to hold on to the rest in case I have the issue again, which is likely! ## You should take the full prescribed amount as directed by your doctor, then consult them if you experience a similar issue and need more of this medication. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, nausea, mood changes, insomnia, and weight changes. Were you prescribed any other medications? ...

Hey, I just got prescribed prednisone 20 mg for a horrible allergy reaction to pet dander and (normal summer reactions). I was wondering if it was suitable to take my first dose tonight? 8pm! I have to be up early tmrw and need to sleep, but also in a lot of discomfort. Any advice would be much appreciated. I also have antihistamines prescribed as well. Could i just double up on them, then take the pred in the morning? Cheers ## Hello, Jon! How are you? It usually takes a few doses for most people to start experiencing side effects. I know the FDA reports that this can cause insomnia, nervousness, irritability and acne, but there's not much chance of it occurring after just one dose, so you should still be able to sleep. What antihistamine was prescribed? I'm sorry, but I need m... ...

Hi. I just want to ask if a person has given 2 tablets of prednisone 20mg instead of 1 tab in just a day, does it mean, he/she needs to skip the another dose for tomorrow? ## Hello, Pranky! How are you? Not necessarily, they should follow their doctor's instructions. Sometimes a bolus of a larger dose is given for the first dose, then it is lowered afterwards for a week, or so. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, acne and weight gain.

I have a terrible rash on my neck, chest and spreading to my breasts. I am on 20 mg. of prednisone (reduced from 30 mg) and have been for almost a month. Could this rash be from the prednisone?? ## Hi Georgia sanders, Based on my research, "rash" is listed as one of the rare side effects of Prednisone.

I was prescribed 20 mg of prednisone for an abnormal lump on my leg, i wasn't aware of any of the terrible side affects and took it the first day feeling quite moody and pretty much lost sense of time, when i went to bed my legs began to ache terribly and my heart wouldn't stop pounding. I didn't sleep much at all and when i did i experienced terrible and odd nightmares. I am supposed to take it for 5 days once a day, but i refuse to take anymore because i simply can't handle the side effects. I haven't taken my second dose... i feel okay since i haven't taken anymore but am afraid since i have read and heard how dangerous it is to suddenly stop taking a medication. Will only one days dosage affect me? Please help....... ## Hello, Mrs. Parsons! How are you doing?... ...

Can I also take 10 mg prednisone Once a day with the norco just for 3-5 days to reduce very bad swelling in wrists hands ganglia? ## Hello, Chris! How are you? Yes, as long as your doctor approves.

how long can you store these in your medicine closet before it is not safe to take them? ## Hello, Basil! How are you? If you are asking about a bathroom medicine chest, they should not be stored there, at all. They should be stored somewhere dark, cool and dry, like a kitchen cabinet or other closet that is away from heat, light and moisture. And they should not be kept past the expiration date on the bottle. All tablets eventually degrade and lost effectiveness. Is there anything else I can help with? ## will prednisone help my sinus post nasel driping down my throat . ## In reading other posts it states it's okay to take medications past their expiration date. That some have a shelf life of over 15 years so why the change of heart to this response? ...
