Prednisolone - how is it used in sinusitis?

Responses (1)

Marvell 18 Oct 2009

Sinusitis is an acute or chronic inflammation of the nasal sinuses. The nasal sinuses are the hollow cavities found within the cheek bones and near the eyes. The inflammation of the nasal sinuses is usually triggered by inadequate draining due to allergies, infections or structural problems of the nose such as narrow drainage passages or a deviated septum.

For patients with severe chronic sinusitis, a doctor may prescribe oral steroids, such as prednisone/prednisolone. Because oral steroids can have significant side effects, they are prescribed only when other medications have not been effective.
