Pulmicort vs steroids was not referencing anabolic steroids: other steroids (pills, liquid inhalers) for asthma. Dr told me not as damaging 2 body. T/f?
True!: Pulmicort is an inhaled form of corticosteroid designed to reduce inflammation in your lungs that make asthma worse.

The symptoms can take a while to resolve especially if there are underlying conditions. With continued symptoms, it would be worth a "re-look" to make sure something is not being overlooked.

Poison ivy on my left eyelids. Topical or oral steroids? Got a shot and 13 day prescription, tapering 60 to 10 mg (Prednisone)
Depends on risk: We can't give specifics in this forum. Poison ivy is contact dermatitis; peaks around 3-5 days after exposure, lasts 14-21d.

Must weigh risks of steroids, systemic (oral+shot) vs. topical (HTN, diabetes, GERD, osteopenia, AVN, glaucoma, cataracts, etc), which include current health status, timing, duration, potency, frequency, etc ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm supposed to be off pred/steroids before my alif surgery, what about advair which is an inhaled steroid & flonase, steroid nose spray? Thoughts?
Adrenal suppression: Being on steroids (inhaled, IV or oral) 3 months, can suppress your adrenal glands, leaving them unable to respond adequately to surgical stress. Your concern is important and having a pre-operative visit with your regular doc/rheumatologist to discuss this issue will be important. Okay to discuss with your surgeon as well. You may benefit from stress steroids around your surgery. ...Read more

Infrequent injections will not cause significant growth effects in children or contribute to decreased bone mass or immune function or increase the risk of weight gain or cataracts. A one in a million risk is hip or knee joint damage. The watch word here is infrequent. ...Read more
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?
