It can be: A problem. Prednisone can increase the chance of increased stomach acid and inflammation, like gastritis or even stomach/duodenal ulcers. Alcohol may contribute to this as well. You didn't say why you are on it, but I am guessing a COPD exacerbation, which means you probably smoke. The combo of alcohol, tobacco and Prednisone is not a good one for your GI tract. Avoid the beer, stop smoking. ...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?

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 more
