Will taking 7 days of prednisone 20 mg conflict with my immunotherapy?

Will taking 7 days of prednisone 20 mg conflict with my immunotherapy?

Not likely: Prednisone is an immunosuppresant. It could blunt your response to immunotherapy for allergies, but it is unlikely to be significant. It is unclear why you are on prednisone, but the benefits most likely out weight the risks if you were prescribed it. It is best to ask the person who prescribed the prednisone to you if you are concerned. ...Read more

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?

 Can I takeup to a 325 mg dose of a magnesium w/these daily medications? 20 mg viibryd, (vilazodone hydrochloride) 25 mg atenolol, 0.5 mg clonazepam, 100 mg gabapentin 50 mg tra

Yes: there are no contraindications with any medication, as far as I know. Magnesium is found in many foods, and magnesium deficiency has become more common, particularly with use of drugs like omeprazole (Prilosec), esomeprazole (Nexium) and similar drugs which markedly reduce stomach acid and impede magnesium absorption. ...Read more

Immunosuppressives: Both of these drugs are immunosuppressive drugs which can weaken the immune system while the disease is being controlled. They both require monitoring. In the long run, prednisone may be associated with more side effects. Be sure to discuss any concerns with your neurologist. ...Read more

Is safe Prilosec 20 mg a day when taking cyclosporine and cellcept (mycophenolate mofetil) ?

Is safe Prilosec 20 mg a day when taking cyclosporine and cellcept (mycophenolate mofetil) ?

Okay with caution.: if needed, Prilosec can be used with either or both of those medicines. However, in some instances Prilosec can increase cyclosporine blood levels and or decrease Cellcept (mycophenolate mofetil) levels. I would not use it unless I had cleared it with my doctors first, and if you are started on it by your doctor, be sure that your levels are monitored properly. Good luck. ...Read more

Dec 12  started ativan .75  mg 4x day for intestinal seizures. Aciphex (rabeprazole) 20 mg 2x day (4 yrs). Gerd/nausea suddenly have become worse (2-3 weeks) ?

Recheck with doctors: One should recheck with her primary care, gi, and neurology doctors. Gerd is a common problem, and happens in millions of people without the rare condition of intestinal seizures. The primary + GI doctors can check on the gerd and its treatment, whether or not they are part of the int. Seizure problem. A neurologist can check on the seizures and/or make adjustments to seizure medication if needed. ...Read more
