Gupisone 20 Prednisolone 20 Side Effect
Hi I'm on prednisolone 5mg 6x day and I've been feeling really weird in my chest and just not feeling good is this a side effect?
Likely: First you need not take it at this frequency. Most people can take 30 mg in one dose or 2 divided doses. It can make you feel strange but most people tend to feel good with it. I presume you are taking this for asthma which usually improve with prednisone but during the transitional phase, you may end up with more coughing as the sputum plugs start to come out. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Hi. I took prednisolone medication 10mg for a day due to inflamatory related condition...will I experience any side effects from it?
Several: Prednisolone is usually given to patients with an acute asthma exacerbation that is not improving with bronchodilators and inhaled steroids alone. The general course is 3 - 7 days. Over that period of time one can expect possible side effects to include: emotional lability, increased appetite, weight gain (mainly from water retention), aggressive behavior. Not everyone experiences any or all these. ...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
I've had 4 ops to fix retinal detachment. 3 weeks ago is most recent, when can I exercise again? Any way of reducing side effects of prednisolone?
Maybe, but: Ask your retinal surgeon. I allow patients to resume exercise when I feel that they are out of danger of redetaching the retina. It can be anywhere from a month to three. Prednisolone eye drops are commonly used after eye surgery. Their side effects are cataract and glaucoma. This is often difficult and limits treatment. Check with your doctor. ...Read more
Prednisolone controls lupus but side effects destroying her skin elasticity causing deep depression. Sos!?
Corticosteroids!: Prednisone and related drugs increase Insulin resistance, depress growth hormone secretion, thin the skin, cause personality changes, etc. These are proportional to dose. These are quite common. I believe in low doses for most people who may benefit from them. Of all the drugs I use, corticosteroids are the most universal in side effects. ...Read more
