Not necessarily....: Acute bronchitis is due to an infection of the airways, either from a viral or bacterial infection.

This would manifest as wheezing or coughing, especially coughing as the rest of your symptoms are improving. See your doctor for diagnosis/treatment if you suspect bronchospasm. ...Read more
Am diag with demyelination and was adminisstered 1gm/day prednisolone for 5 days. What care I should take in future.
Personal issue: This is a long acting preparation & breaking up the dose doesn't change much in it's clinical effect. It is usually better to take in one dose just so you won't forget the 2nd. Some may find splitting it easier to get down, since even adults can be poor with this, but that is the only thing I can think of to do so. ...Read more

I have IgA nephrophaty and now take 3 tab of prednisolone. At the same time, I breastfeed my baby3 months. Should I stop taking that medicine..
Talk 2 doc: You need to consult your nephrologist about this since medical treatment is based on risk/benefit ratio. If your risk of losing kidney function is high, you will need to consider abandoning breast- feeding which is good but not essential. Nonetheless, i'd not be too concerned if the Prednisone dose is 15 mg a day that the baby will get much of it. ...Read more

Maybe but it depends: I can't answer your question exactly b/c you didn't specify NSAID or antihistamine. Check out both www. Online. Epocrates. Com & www. Drugs.

Better yet, ask whoever prescribed your meds. Always tell ur doc what you're taking! ...Read more
So how often do I have to take albuterol, prednisolone and aminophylline in order to reduce its side effects on the body.
Not sure t: If you're talking about the "jitteriness" with albuterol and aminophylline, this should diminish the longer you take them but on a routine basis. Prednisone is another story. Water retention, acne, weight gain is common but does not necessarily diminish with time. If it can be switched to a inhaled form, the side effects candiminish dramatically. ...Read more
