Prednisone Memory Loss
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
Prescribed 100mg of Prednisone day1 to taper off by 20mg until day6. Is this safe, and considered long term use? Afraid of bad side effects like weight gain, muscle loss,diabetes,etc.
Is moderately severe sensorineural hearing loss and tinitis usually treated with the steroid prednisone? If there is no improvement then what else?
Yes: Cellcept lists them as known side EFX. Prednisone notes muscle weakness and pain, confusion and trouble thinking clearly.

Hopefully, it's short term and you'll return to being yourself. ...Read more

Have inflammed inner ear nerve. How long for prednisone to start relieving symptoms (tinnitus, hearing loss)? On 100mg, 90 mg then 4 more days tampering by 20mg. Today took dose 2, feel the same.
Vestibular Neuritis: I assume a full work up has been done including MRI of brain and inner ear to rule out other cause of Tinnitus and hearing loss, if that's the case it depends how soon the treatment has been started, if it has been started early in course all symptoms should be resolved soon, if not mild hearing loss could persists. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm taking plaqeunil, mobic, prednisone for rheumatoid arthritis. Can I use phentermine for weight loss while on these other medications?
Weight medications: The easy answer is "yes." however 1) the weight gain tendency caused (primarily) by Prednisone will continue, so consider finding an effective regimen for your RA and pain that doesn't cause weight gain. 2) Phentermine generally only works well for a short period of time. Most people who use it find that it wears off after several weeks or months. There may be better weight options besides phent. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
