Hello. Take the prednisone. Your safety is important and this will reduce inflammation.
Don't worry about serious side effects, they happen over a long time using prednisone, like months and years. The only thing you may notice is a flushing or warm feeling, perhaps sweating, which goes away. Some people feel nothing at all. Some feel a rpid heart beat for a short time. all pf this is fine. if too troubling, call your doctor. Since this is temporary you should be fine.
I am a bit worried that you say it is forty and I do hope that you are taking forty for a few days, then thirty, then twenty. It does have to have careful weaning.
I suggest you call the doctor, tell them how you feel about this and find out the full instructions. Any other questions, feel free to ask. Karen
I sees you are saying one pill per day? Please say the dose for that pill.
Wow. Thank you for your caring comment. No "doomsday" reply. I will take them. Feels good to know I'm not alone here.:)
Oh yea, it says 2 tablets daily for 4 days (20mg) that's it.
Be sure to take one in the morning and one at night. Always take with food. Like a meal not a snack. You can handle a few sweats if you happen to get them. Hope this goes well for you. Write me if anything comes up. Stay well! Karen
Hi bookworm, do you have a question?
Yea, thanks for asking. I have an allergic reaction to an insect bite (first time) and was given predisone for 4 days but scared to take it. The Doctor and Pharmacist said not to worry as it's what they give for allergic reactions. I'm probably over reacting as I read other people had terrible results. What do you suggest?
allergic reactions, prednisone
