I have taken 60 m.g prednisolone in 48 hours then I stopped it suddenly . I was take prednisolone 20 m.g + azithromycin 250 m.g + ondansetrone 8 m.g all together . Am I in trouble ?
If your were taking 20 m.g you should have worked your way up to the 60. You should do take a 29 and take one and cut in half and take the 20 and the half for the first day. Then the next day take 2 20 mg. The on the third day or 4th take 2, 20 and,a half and then on the 5 day you should be taking the total of 60 mg. You need to ramp up any med that is increased that much.
You have already taken this dosage. I suggest that you talk right away with the pulmonologist -
hopefully the Doctor who prescribed these medications to you to clarify individually how each medication is to be taken and the time spacing of each. Stopping after 48 hours does not seem right. The question now also is - How are you feeling ? Get competent medical advice on this
ASAP simply because you are so worried to have written in that you think you may be in trouble.
If you think you are in trouble you well might be.
A course of Prednisolone usually is for 5 days in my experience with this drug and each dose is
graded. Good luck with this. Be safe. These medicines are powerful.
