PREDNISONE (PREDNISONE)

Prednisone Description

If you are experiencing inflammation caused by allergies, arthritis, or asthma, your doctor may prescribe Prednisone to help reduce the redness, pain, and swelling that can occur. Prednisone is an immunosuppressant or anti inflammatory medication that also treats ulcerative colitis, lupus, and Addison’s disease that involves your adrenal glands.

Treatment with Prednisone brand or generic may be prescribed as a long-term medication at a lower and safer dose. Regular blood, bone density, and eye tests will be required to monitor your progress while tracking any problems that may arise. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Enjoy Relief From Your Symptoms of Pain, Swelling, and Inflammation

When taken as directed, Prednisone will inhibit your immune system in order to decrease the production of inflammatory chemicals that are produced as a response to injury or pain. These chemicals include prostaglandins that widen blood vessels to assist with the healing process. Prednisone does not completely stop all inflammatory chemicals so healing still takes places, but inflammation causes more inflammation so the corticosteroid decreases how much of these chemicals or substances are produced.

Conditions Treated by Prednisone

Addison’s disease involves your autoimmune system that, for unknown reasons, begins attacking your adrenal cortex. This affects the ability of your adrenal glands to produce certain hormones, including cortisol and aldosterone. Cortisol is a stress-coping steroid and helps your body use glucose and fat for energy. Aldosterone is important for regulating salt (sodium) levels in your blood. Prednisone will help to supplement your steroid levels, but it is not a cure for Addison’s disease.

Before You Receive a Prednisone Rx

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding so you are aware of any risks associated with taking Prednisone. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently use or take, including alternative and complimentary meds. Your doctor can then decide if Prednisone is right for you or if any changes need to be made with regards to dosages.

Prednisone Precautions

Prednisone generic or brand may make you more susceptible to infections due to a lowered immune system so avoid areas with large crowds of people that could spread germs. Monitor your blood sugar levels often if you are a diabetic when taking Prednisone. Never share your medications with anyone else and always keep them out of children’s reach.
