small white round pill with z 2907 on it ## There is no definitive way to say what Prednisone looks like, the way it looks can ary greatly by manufacturer, there are no guidelines saying that all pills containing a certain med have to look the same. They can vary in size, color, shape and imprint. The only guidelines for pills from the FDA says the imprints have to be unique for identification purposes. Even these differ from company to company and according to the dosage of the pill. Now, as to this pill, Z 2907 is Furosemide 40mgs. Pill Image It is a generic for the diuretic Lasix, this helps to increase the amount of uring a person passes to help the body lose water and salt to help treat high blood pressure. ## what does prednisolone look like ## how to take prednisone 10mg i dont u... ...

So if you're still unable to determine whether the cause is stress or medication related, it would still be wise to contact your doctor in the meantime just to play it safe. He/she may then suggest that you stop taking the medication until further notice. Ref: When it comes to many of these types of side effects, ... ...

Hi to all .. What type of Prednisone is Acetate prednisone? Is it actually Prednisone? And would it help with arthritis? It's only 5mg ## Hello, Brenda! How are you? Yes, they are the same, the acetate just designates the specific chemical salt that the medication was derived from, so if you look at various FDA and NIH listings, you'll see many medications listed as Oxycodone Hydrochloride, Losartan Potassium, Morphine Sulfate, and etc. The FDA lists typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, acne, insomnia, and nervousness. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Was rushed by ambulance to the hospital for choking and was placed on prednisone of 50 mg/day for a week with a plan to have the prednisone decreased by 10mg/day every week there after, until weaned. She starts today with 20 mg(s)/day for the next week, but has not regained any of her energy. I am praying for a miracle that she will regain her strength, but it does not look very promising. Was the initial dose of 50mg/day too much for her system. Her pneumonia appears to have cleared up, but she is so short winded, fatigued, always wants to sleep and has lost interest in her usual activities. Prior to the pneumonia, was washing p... ...

IF I TAKE LOW DOSE PREDNISONE FOR PMR, HOW CAN I AVOID MOONFACE AND WEIGHT GAIN? ## Don t know if this will happen or not, but prednisone, causes rises in blood sugar, you may have to keep a check on it an may require insulin, I m no Dr. just a hillbilly, speak with your Dr. in regards to this info. ## Martha, I've been on prednisone for 4 years for Polymyalgia, starting with very high dosage, but now down to 10 mgs. per day. The moon face may have gone down a little, but I look nothing like I did before I started the prednisone. At this point, I am still puffy faced, puffy belly, puffy back, and have bruises all over my arms and hands. The least little bump causes a bruise and/or the skin to peel as the skin becomes very thin. Of course, with all the ugly side effects, depression i... ...

I was cleaning my coffee pot with vinegar & water and it spilled out on my counter. My prednisone pills 10 milligrams were in a paper envelope. Most of them got wet and looks like they dissolved a little. But I took them out of the envelope to dry. Some of them fall apart when I pick them up. Is it still safe to take these.

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? ...

Will I incur bad side effects from only 9 days of use? ## Hi gina, Honestly, there's really no telling when or if you might ever end up experiencing certain side effects from taking this medication. And although some people are more prone than others due to their body chemistry, it's generally not something that can easily be predicted, if that's what you're asking? On another note, you may want to have a look at prednisone's list of possible side effects (linked below) to help give you an idea of what signs/symptoms to be aware of throughout the duration of your treatment: Do you feel like you've been responding well to the medication, thus far? ## Yes my case of sumac was/is really bad but my eyes ... ...

West Ward Prednisone 5 Mg Tablet
2 Replies RSS
I have trouble telling the difference between my 25 mg tablet of metoprolo by Ranbaxy and my 5 mg tablet of prednisone by West-Ward. How can I easily tell the difference when in my pill case? ## Take a closer look at the imprints on them, the imprints are on the tablets and usually placed on most prescriptions labels, as well. The 25mg Metoprolol from Ranbaxy should have the marking RE 79 on it. The 5mg Prednisone has the marking WEST-WARD 475. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Just because you're taking generics doesn't mean that you cannot ask for the same generic company for your meds. Perhaps you could ask your doc to Rx both meds from the same generic company. The Metropolol and the pred 5 from Ranbaxy (for example) do not look alike. ...

Need Help with Lingering Side Effects of Prednisone
2 Replies RSS
I am a 30 year old female and in the beginning of March 2013 I got terribly sick with some sort of cold paired with a severe sinus infection. I was prescribed Methylprednisolone 4mg dose pack. I completed that with only minor side effects however it didn't really work and I was back at the doctor a mere week later feeling just as bad. I was then prescribed Prednisone 20mg tablets, taking 3 daily for 5 days. It helped my symptoms and I felt better. However, my last dose was Sunday 3/17/2013 and today is Wednesday 3/20/2013 and I am feeling incredibly strange. I feel weak, tired, irritable, depressed, dizzy and light-headed at times, off balance and I am getting mild headaches. I'm also moody and have a short temper.

Im an 18 year old Male, supposed to be a fun time being 18 and all….but boy has prednisolone stuffed up my last year or so. Maybe i just react worse to this drug than some people, but the way its hit me has to be lived to be believed. The irritable uncomfortable feeling (even when your trying to relax on the couch), the anger and mood swings that are constant, the weight gain and wanting to eat all the time, the insomnia which makes you feel even worse for lack of sleep, the gigantic swelling in the face to make a once normal face a horror show, the fever which is so often there, the acne all over my body, the lack of confidence I now have, the depressing way you now interact with the ones you love, and one of the worst things to go through, the looking back and remembering how go... ...

Did acne stay clear for anyone who took Prednisone?
Post a Reply
I was prescribed prednisone for a bad allergic reaction. My rash cleared, and It immediately had the side benefit of clearing up existing acne inflammation within one day. It was pretty incredible, as I've been struggling with mild/moderate acne for ages. However, reading Prednisone reviews, I'm getting very concerned that once I stop the prednisone (I'm tapering down), my acne will flare up worse than before. I was wondering if there is anyone who has the positive side affect of clearing up acne, without it returning. I am actually only looking to hear those stories with positive acne outcome - I have read dozens and dozens account of people that didnt stay clear - so to ease my fear and help me stay positive, please share if your inflammation didn't return as bad as befor ...

what is a c pak breathing treatment
1 Reply RSS
I had to have two c pack breathing treatments yesterday plus a shot of Prednisone but I did a albuterol breathing earlier that day so why all the stuff at er ## Hi Lucy, Sorry to hear about your experience at the ER. Based on my research, C-pack breathing treatment may be referring to CPAP breathing devices that are commonly used to help treat breathing disorders; typically sleep apnea. If you run a search on google images for "cpap machines" you'll get an idea of what they look like. However, I suppose the only way to find out why they did what they did at the ER is to contact them directly... How have you been feeling lately? ...
