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

There is more to: this than the tests that you mentioned. There a number of labs to consider and there is such a thing as seronegative MG (all labs negative and doubt from everybody). In the cases of seronegative MG, a single finger EMG helps confirm the diagnosis. Not all neurologists are trained in single fiber EMG and the ones that are typically did advanced EMG training. You may have to see a major center. ...Read more

I can't get rid of a cough that starts mid chest. I'm taking prednisone & clarithamycin (3 days). Up half the night. How can I get rid of it.?

More information: You may need a chest xray, inhalent, or other breathing treatments as well as antireflux medication. Asthma can be set off by lying flat if you are having reflux. Discuss your diagnosis with your doctor (asthma versus bronchitis versus infection, etc) and that will give you a time line and a game plan. ...Read more

Only time: Unfortunately, if you are on a high dose of prednisone, and 60 mg/day is indeed a high dose, there is really nothing you can do while you are on the medication to lose the fat. Prednisone has a lot of unpleasant side effects including redistribution of fat, loss of muscle mass, osteoporosis, muscle weakness and more. It will take considerable time off the medication before your appearance is same. ...Read more

Sudden allergy to opiates after tkr. Never had before.  Will i now not be able to take them again for pain?  On prednisone to try to get rid of itch!

Yes. Don't take agai: If it was established by your physician that you had a true allergic reaction to an opiate, you should not take an opiate again; the severity of the next reaction is not predictable, and could be anything from mild to anaphylaxis. There are other analgesics available and alternate ways to treat moderate to severe pain. ...Read more

Remedies for a deep congested cough? Went to doctor, had chest X-ray and it was normal. Dr said bad bronchitis. 20mg of prednisone & advair. What else can I do to get rid of this cough?!?!

Remedies for a deep congested cough? Went to doctor, had chest X-ray and it was normal. Dr said bad bronchitis. 20mg of prednisone & advair. What else can I do to get rid of this cough?!?!

Cough: If the medications your doctor gave you do help cure the cough, consider other causes for the cough. One of these is gastrointestinal reflux disease (gerd). Gerd can be present without symptoms of heart burn. Speak to your physician (p) about the possibility of your having gerd and your p may consider putting you on a proton pump inhibitor to see if that stops your coughing. Good luck. ...Read more

I started prednisone yesterday because of a lung and sinus infection i can't get rid of. But now my legs and arms are very achy is there any relation?

Antibiotic allergy?: I have seen prednisone used to open up the airways and help to breath easier, but it is not known to cause pain. I have seen patients that have joint and muscle pain due to a reaction to antibiotics. Were you prescribed anything else to treat the infection? Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) DS? Levaquin? ...Read more
