If pediapred (prednisolone) is an immune system suppressant why would my one-year-old's dr prescribe it along with antibiotics for her diagnosis of bronchiolitis and upper respiratory infection? Is this ok?

If pediapred (prednisolone) is an immune system suppressant why would my one-year-old's dr prescribe it along with antibiotics for her diagnosis of bronchiolitis and upper respiratory infection? Is this ok?

Short vs long term: The Pediapred (prednisolone) mimics a stress hormone we all make that helps us maintain the cell wall integrity & calm down inflammation. It is common to use Pediapred (prednisolone) in bronchiolitis & some other issues in young kids over a short 5 day period. Limiting the rx to several days avoids the immune suppression that occurs if you use it over weeks or months. I use it often for similar issues. ...Read more

I have only double vision from last 7 weeks and taking medication as prednisolone that helped me to reduce the diplopia. Is this the symptoms of ms?

I have only double vision from last 7 weeks and taking medication as prednisolone that helped me to reduce the diplopia. Is this the symptoms of ms?

Double vision: Need to know if the double vision is monocular or binocular. Cover one eye. If the double vision goes away, then it is so called binocular diplopia. If you have double vision with only one eye open, then it suggests that the problem is in the eye itself, and not the brain. Cannot exclude ms as a cause, but start with a good examination and medical evaluation. ...Read more

Based on your urine protein and medications, it seems you may have membranous lupus nephritis. Your nephrologist should be monitoring your response to treatment. ...Read more

My grandfather is 84 years old he is diagnosed with sciatica. He is prescribed prednisolone 4mg what is consequences on long term use with this drug.

Lots: However conventional wisdom is that if you haven't gotten enough relief with one Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack, unlikely its better to give more. In fact new research is showing that your risk of fracture increases almost 400% after one oral dosepack of steroids. You are better off getting an epidural steroid injection instead. Risk still exists but way less compared to oral steroids. ...Read more

Migraine treatment: There are many good medications for migraine treatment. Migraine is a serious and complex neurologic disorder. Today effective management of migraine involves three specific strategies: 1) patient education 2) non-pharmacological management (diet, sleep hygiene, acupuncture) and 3) pharmacological (triptans, topamax, (topiramate) etc) management.

Doc has put me on tapering dose of 60mg prednisolone for chronic migraine not resp. To drugs and partial resp. To Botox. He says that non resp. To prednisolone means my migaine is psychiatric. True?

Not true exactly: Prednisolone is not a common migraine treatment protocol. Often times there's also a underlying dietary, or food allergy source to migraine that can be exacerbating or causing continuous, chronic issues, along with stress. So it would be good to have a food allergy panel done with complement testing to rule out this possibility. Then look at other possible triggers. You don't want to be on chronic steroid treatment. ...Read more
