Is it safe to exercise while taking Amoxicillin and Prednisone? If so what exercise could I do?

Is it safe to exercise while taking Amoxicillin and Prednisone? If so what exercise could I do?

Yes: There is nothing about either one of those medications that should stop you from maintaining your usual exercise routine. However, if you still have significant symptoms (for which you are taking those medicines in the first place), then perhaps it is best to give your body a few days of rest. ...Read more

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

If : If you are having fever and cough or any sob, i would suggest that you see a primary care physician so that he or she can listed to your lungs to see if you have pneumonia and evaluate you for a possible outpatient chest x-ray. Although Amoxicillin is good for strep, it may not be appropriate for you if you have a pneumonia. If you are just having the pain, especially with a cough, you may have pulled a muscle. Good luck. ...Read more

I've been prescribed a prednisone taper and amoxicillin for what are essentially chronically bad allergies. What side effects should I be aware of?

I've been prescribed a prednisone taper and amoxicillin for what are essentially chronically bad allergies. What side effects should I be aware of?

Pred taper and amoxi: Hi IlyaM~ the pred taper is the important one and then it depends of startng dose. If starting dose is above 60mg-80mg which we give for acute allergy breathing probems and various conditions like flares of rheumatoid and SLE, the side effects of steroid are many I attach a list here. Below 60mg to start with, and so there shd be no real side effect. Amoxiil can give PENICILLIN ALLERGY and diarrea ...Read more

My 16-month old has diaper rash from amoxicillin prescription for uri. Also rx'd prednisone. Can the pred. Help pain for rash, or should OTC ibuprof better?

My 16-month old has diaper rash from amoxicillin prescription for uri. Also rx'd prednisone. Can the pred. Help pain for rash, or should OTC ibuprof better?

Use an ointment.: The pain of the diaper rash is mainly caused by the diaper and the urine and stool touching the rash. Coat his bottom with a thick film of zinc oxide paste (found in most over the counter diaper ointments) to protect it. If that does not help, then Ibuprofen is a good pain reliever. You should give the Prednisone as prescribed - it should never be given outside of what it says on the label. ...Read more

Is it ok to take an OTC sleep aid while on 10mg of prednisone, three times a day I have tonsillitis, so i was put on prednisone and amoxicillin. The prednisone has caused me lack of sleep.

Is it ok to take an OTC sleep aid while on 10mg of prednisone, three times a day I have tonsillitis, so i was put on prednisone and amoxicillin. The prednisone has caused me lack of sleep.

Most : Most otc sleep aids contain diphenhydramine, if this is what you plan on taking, then there is no interaction between the two (diphenhydramine and prednisone) and you should be fine. Insomnia is usually not a side effect of prednisone; consider other reasons. If this problem persists bring it to your doctor's attention. Best of luck. ...Read more
