Prednisone 10 Mg Dose Pak
Is it true that a person taking prednisone regularly should avoid grapefruit, and if so - why? If not, what foods should be avoided? (dose is 10 mg)
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
Does stopping prednisone after a dose of 40 mg daily for ten days cause tinnitus an a withdrawal effect?
Not familiar: with tinnitus as a complaint after cessation of Prednisone but there can certainly be some "withdrawal" symptoms such as malaise (occasionally severe and of long duration), and anorexia. Even though it is not absolutely necessary, I always prefer to taper the dose over a period of 10-14 days after using the drug at 40mg or higher. Symptoms should dissipate soon. ...Read more

How long does it take the body to re-regulate itself after a single 60 mg dose of oral prednisone?
No: Prenisone is converted to prednisolone in about 1 hour. Half of what remains is excreted in the urine in 2-4 hours (half-life) unless. So after 4 hours, you have 10mg in your system. After 8 hours, you have 5mg, after 12 hours, 2.5... You can see that the amount in your system after 4 days would be very very small. For therapeutic purposes, it would be gone. For a drug test? I don't know. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with overuse injuries in several tendon. After my 10 day dose of prednisone, will my injuries heal, or is this just masking the pain?
Will heal: The Prednisone course is useful for the acute period of inflammation and pain reduction. It does not cure the problem and should not be used for anything more than a short course. Rest and physical therapy are the mainstay therapies of overuse/underuse syndromes and healing can take many months to a year. Resume physical activities slowly and consistently, with a plan to build up gradually. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
