Skin Soreness From Prednisone
Took 20mg prednisone and 150mg clindamycin for a week now I am no longer takig it can this cause whole back and head soreness and aches?
Unlikely: This combination should not cause the symptoms you describe.
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

Other meds?: If you have severe enough crohns disease that it requires prednisone, it is unlikely that you will be able to just taper off without the use of a steroid sparing agent such as biological agents (ie. Remicade) or immunomodulators (mercaptopurine). See your gastroenterologist or am did a referral to an ibd subspecialist.See 1 more doctor answer

Put on prednisone today 3 tablets twice a day for throat soreness. Is my immune system suppressed now from steroids, and if so how do I stay healthy.
Minimal suppression: The key to the immune system being suppressed from prednisone is typically based more on the duration of therapy. (assuming you are otherwise healthy) Short term use days to couple weeks can be fairly safe. Still would rec healthy eating, avoiding people you know are sick, and good hand washing is probably key to decreasing your risk of infection.
Watch out: For the stomach when on Prednisone and warfarin, its eay to get an ulcer so make sure she is using something to prevent ulcers and stay away from nsaids like asa or aleve (naproxen). The sore leg may be nothing but soreness. Is it swollen? Can she walk on it? Does it get worse after aleking a prolonged distance? It may be nothing or it may be something; so other medical issues I wouldn't blow it off, call pcp.

Really dry sore throat could it be thymus? I had a sore throet last time lasted ages chest ache not helped by antibitoics or prednisone and inhaler
Cough: Thymus? No. You mean Thyroid? Big difference. Also no. You have not provided any information about yourself such as medical history. Why were you given prednisone and inhaler for "sore throat"? Did you have asthma, bronchitis or pneumonia? was your throat cultured for proper antibiotic coverage? You may benefit from consulting an ENT if your doctor has not been able to clear your throat problems.See 1 more doctor answer
