No relief, see a doctor. ...Read more

Why can't people stay on prednisolone for ever?

Steroid side effects: Actually, some people have to take steroids lifelong. Prednisolone is a hormone in the cortisone family, and cortisone is required for life.

Can you tell me what to expect with prednisolone (prelone) and toddlers?

Can you tell me what to expect with prednisolone (prelone) and toddlers?

Steroids/toddlers: I assume these are being given orally. First, you can expect them to spit them back at you, because they leave a terrible aftertaste. Helps to chase with chocolate milk or M&M's. They also will eat you out of house and home and be very sassy. Sleep can be disturbed and may experience night terrors. All of these will disappear once med is done...but in meantime, good luck! ...Read more
