Prednisone

Prednisone is a type of corticosteroid, a type of drug that suppresses inflammation. Other corticosteroids include cortisone and hydrocortisone. Corticosteroids like prednisone are used to help treat inflammatory conditions, which include arthritis, asthma, and skin rashes such as eczema. They are also used to suppress the immune system, which means they can be useful to treat autoimmune disorders where the immune system mistakenly attacks the body.

Prednisone and other corticosteroids may be prescribed in several different forms. Prednisone is available as tablets or a liquid, both of which are taken by mouth. In tablet form, there is also a delayed-release tablet available. Prednisone might be used alone or together with other medications. As well as treating conditions of people with normal corticosteroid levels in their body, it can be used to treat people who have low levels of corticosteroids.

What Is Prednisone Prescribed For?

Prednisone might be prescribed for people who have low corticosteroid levels, replacing steroids that are normally naturally produced by the body. It is also prescribed to treat a range of health conditions that cause inflammation or involve the immune system.

Prednisone might be prescribed for some types of arthritis, severe allergic reactions, lupus, asthma, multiple sclerosis, and a range of conditions that cause inflammation or where the immune system is attacking the body’s tissues (autoimmune disorders). It can also be used to treat some types of cancer. Because it changes the way the immune system works, it has a broad range of uses.

How Does Prednisone Work?

Prednisone works in a couple of different ways. In people who have low levels of naturally-occurring corticosteroids, it works by replacing those that are missing. In other conditions, it helps to reduce inflammation, redness, and other problems by affecting the way the immune system works. By suppressing inflammation and the immune system, prednisone can treat the symptoms of multiple health problems and diseases. It’s usually an oral medication, although it can sometimes be given as an injection. However, it’s more likely to be given as an injection in hospital rather than as a prescription to take at home.

What Are the Side Effects of Prednisone?

Like any medication, prednisone can have some side effects. Some of the more common side effects include:

  • Weight gain
  • Indigestion
  • Insomnia
  • Restlessness
  • Excessive sweating
  • Mild changes in mood

There is a higher chance of experiencing side effects if you have a high dosage of prednisone or take it for a longer period of time. Both of these things can make serious side effects more likely, which can include infections, high blood sugar, Cushing’s syndrome, adrenal gland problems, low potassium levels, pancreas problems, and more. If you have been taking prednisone for more than a few weeks, it’s important to speak to your doctor before stopping to reduce the risk of side effects related to withdrawal.

Frequently asked questions

  • Prednisone is not available as an over-the-counter medication. As a steroid drug, it’s important that the use of prednisone is prescribed and monitored by a doctor, so it requires a prescription to get it.

As your condition improves, it’s normal to reduce the dosage. Follow the instructions of your doctor or pharmacist.

  • When taking prednisone, it can be dangerous to stop taking it suddenly. It can cause your health condition to flare up or withdrawal symptoms.
