Voltaren Prednisone Cream
Have been constipated for a few days I take prednisone voltaren and Nexium (esomeprazole) can any off those make me constipated?
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

Would oral prednisone help a thrombosed external hemorrhoid thats failed tx w/ hc suppositories & cream? What's best for pain control?
Hemrrhoid: Oral Prednisone has not been well documented in the literature in the treatment of hemrrhoids. Keeping on a strict schedule of nsaids for their anti-inflammatory effect, barring no contra-indications in your personal history, would be beneficial to you. I would recomment starting with Ibuprofen (motrin) 600mg 3 times a day for 30 days. The anti-inflammatory effects take a full week before benefit. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
