Prednisone is prescribed as a monotherapy or in combination with other medications to alleviate the symptoms associated with insufficient levels of corticosteroids. Additionally, prednisone is employed in the treatment of various medical conditions in patients who have normal corticosteroid levels. These conditions encompass specific forms of arthritis, severe allergic reactions, multiple sclerosis, lupus, as well as ailments affecting the lungs, skin, eyes, kidneys, blood, thyroid, stomach, and intestines.

Prednisone belongs to a class of medications known as corticosteroids. In cases where corticosteroid levels are low, prednisone operates by replacing the naturally produced steroids within the body. For other conditions, its mechanism of action involves diminishing swelling and redness, and altering the functioning of the immune system.

Uses and Dosage

Prednisone is available in tablet, delayed-release tablet, liquid solution, and concentrated solution forms for oral administration. Typically, prednisone is taken orally with food, either one to four times a day or on alternate days. Your doctor will provide specific instructions regarding the timing of your prednisone doses, tailored to your condition and treatment response. Adhere to the prescribed dosage of prednisone precisely, without taking more or less of it, or altering the frequency or duration of treatment beyond the doctor’s recommendation.

If you are using the concentrated solution, utilize the provided dropper, marked specifically for measurement, to determine your dose accurately. The concentrated solution can be mixed with juice, flavored liquids, or soft foods such as applesauce.

Ensure that you swallow the delayed-release tablet whole, without chewing or crushing it.

During the course of your treatment, your doctor may make adjustments to your prednisone dosage to ensure that you are consistently taking the lowest effective dose. Changes to your dose may also be necessary in situations involving unusual physical stress on your body, such as surgery, illness, infection, or severe asthma attacks.

If you are taking prednisone for a chronic condition, note that the medication helps manage the condition but does not provide a cure. Continue taking prednisone as prescribed, even if you feel well. Discontinuing prednisone abruptly without consulting your doctor can result in insufficient natural steroid levels in your body, leading to symptoms such as extreme fatigue, weakness, reduced mobility, gastrointestinal discomfort, weight loss, changes in skin pigmentation, mouth ulcers, and salt cravings. Contact your doctor if you experience these or any other unusual symptoms while gradually reducing your prednisone dosage or after discontinuing the medication.
