my mum was given prednisolone 5mg--5 tablets a day for a week but she got confused and took 5 in the morning and 5 in the evening just the once will she be ok she is worried as she is 81 and very panicky ty... she was given this for a breathing problem due to mild pneumonia , would really be grateful for any advice you can give her chest seems fine now its just double dosing the one day , she took the first dose at 07.30am then the next dose at 21.00pm
If she is 81 you should really call to your doctor and ask what to do. If that is not possible take her to the hospital. This is just in case that mistake will affect the desired effect in the treatment that has been given to her!
