I am 65 years of age with asthma/c.o.p.d.
I believe this is best answered by your doctor. I used to work for an Allergy doctor & have allergies, asthma & so on. He used to prescribe 5 mg a day for people with these conditions that were chrontic. Be careful as it can eat away at your bones if you take it all the time. Luck to you,
Hello Skid I have been on & off this drug for over 25 years ! it is called prednisolone ( solone ) which helps settle flair ups of information in the joints due to arthritis, also this drug is used for cronic asthma .The dose I am normally given by the doctor is 2 x 25mg once a day this is only for 5 days ! it never has been given to me for any longer period ! & can only say this drug has only ever made my mouth dry while taking it no other side effects to note.
Hope this answers some questions regarding this drug, & that you can use this information, take care have a great day Candypq
After reading about prednisolone, this is what I found:
Dosage and Administration
PO 5 to 60 mg/day. Oral disintegrating tablet: 10 to 60 mg/day.
Also found this dosing regimen:
Alternate-day therapy, a corticosteroid dosing regimen in which twice the usual daily dose is administered every other day, is used to provide patients requiring long-term pharmacologic dose treatment with the beneficial effects of prednisolone while minimizing certain adverse reactions (eg, pituitary-adrenal suppression, Cushingoid state, growth suppression in children).
Hope this gives ya a little to go one,
