Prednisone (Definition)

Prednisone is a synthetic cortisone. The body makes cortisone, a natural hormone made in adrenal glands. The body converts it to Hydrocortisone to become active. 25 mg of cortisone has about same effect as 5 mgm prednisone. The average person would produce 3-6 mg of pred daily. So why use a substitute? The synthetic has more anti-inflammatory effect; but has less effect ...Read more

My husband has had bronchitis for a month. He's had a z pack and prednisone twice. Shouldn't they have given him a shot of penicillin and breathing tr?

My husband has had bronchitis for a month. He's had a z pack and prednisone twice. Shouldn't they have given him a shot of penicillin and breathing tr?

Workup/Mgt: There are many conditions which can cause a prolonged cough. These include asthma, sinus infections and reflux/aspiration. In addition to checking for these, I would also recommend avoiding smoke and a TB test.
Most bronchitis infections are viral and are therefore not treated with antibiotics. If he has prolonged wheezing and dry cough, albuterol/inhaled or oral steroids are indicated. ...Read more

Prednisone and antibiotics okay to take together? . Or separately at different times?

Prednisone and antibiotics okay to take together? . Or separately at different times?

A Juggling Act: If prescribed together, the doctor hopefully knows what he's doing. There are times when it's OK (e.g. a flaming strep throat or Mono) and many other times when it's not (like when you need all the immune reserve you can get). We should always lean the balance of power of those drugs towards the immune integrity side. There are ways to juggle the equation, but leave that up to your doctor. ...Read more

Can I take 50 mg tramadol & 25 mg phenegren tablet together? Also I'm starting prednisone today. Can I mix all 3?

Can I take 50 mg tramadol & 25 mg phenegren tablet together? Also I'm starting prednisone today. Can I mix all 3?

Synergistic: If the ultram makes you tired the Phenergan (promethazine) will increase that sensation. The Prednisone will actually tend to make you more awake. The combination is unpredictable but at the dosage you have listed would be safe. I would recommend taking the Prednisone with food to keep from having an upset stomach. Always disclose all medicines you are taking to each of your physicians. ...Read more

Can you take Advil (ibuprofen) and prednisone together?

Can you take Advil (ibuprofen) and prednisone together?

You can, but don't: If you are on prednisone, you shouldn't need the advil (ibuprofen). The anti-inflammatory effects of the predisone are far more powerful than advil (ibuprofen). You also run a higher risk of GI upset. A better strategy is one or the other depending upon what your doctor says. ...Read more

Need schedule recommendation taking aspirin, plavix, prednisone, protonix (pantoprazole). I'd like to know in which order to take first, all together or hours apart.

Timing of Meds: I tell my patients to take Prednisone in the AM, less likely to cause insomnia. Protonix (pantoprazole) should be taken before a meal. Plavix should be taken at the same time every day. Can take the Rx spread out, 2 a day or all at once ...Read more

Hi, I am taking Amox-Clav 875-125mg, prednisone 50 mg, Benzonatate 100mg and Promethazine syrup. Is this safe to take together?

Yes: When your illness is severe, you sometimes need all of these medications for a short period to recover. I suggest taking pro-biotics (or eating yogurt with active cultures) while on this regime to keep your good bacteria healthy. ...Read more

Are any of these meds diuretics: Prednisone, Phenergan, (promethazine) Lomotil, Bentyl? I take them together and after a couple hours, I have to pee every 10 minutes

Are any of these meds diuretics: Prednisone, Phenergan, (promethazine) Lomotil, Bentyl? I take them together and after a couple hours, I have to pee every 10 minutes

Not diuretics: These medications are not diuretics. If you urinate every 10 minutes, urinary tract infection has to be ruled out. See your doctor. Bentyl (dicyclomine) has anticholinergic side effects and might be responsible for urinary disturbances, usually difficulty to start urination. ...Read more

Shifted Sacroiliac: "Sciatica" is a broad term. Many times a pain in the buttock is referred pain from the sacroiliac joint that has shifted out of its normal anatomic position. This is actually very common, and often flared by going up stairs. Usually a result of trauma or lifting things that are too heavy. Ibuprofen is a good Rx. I would avoid using the steroids without first seeing your medical pro ...Read more
