Prednisolone - Articles

Prednisolone by Rich Posted Fri 30 May 2008 12:00am Here's a funny little drug. Its a corticosteroid, which means it can reduce inflammation in your body. I don't know why or how. I am currently tapering down a course of these, now on 5mg a day. This is the 4th course i've taken in 5 years. The first time they were pumped straight into my veins in great big doses, which I wa ... Read on »
Prednisolone burst. by meggzzie Patient Expert Posted Thu 01 Jul 2010 11:27am *grumbles* I hate pred. Don't get me wrong, I love that it does it's job. But I hate the side effects, like the insomnia (which I already have, so added with a 5 day pred increase to 30mg- which isn't the end of the world, but is higher than my maintenance 10mg- I'm probably gonna be a sleepless zombie for a few days) plus the potential threat ...

Ode to a steriod. by meggzzie Patient Expert Posted Sun 04 Oct 2009 11:14pm I've been put on a course of prednisolone. And all I can think about is the last time I was on it (albeit a much higher dose for a much longer period of time) my face puffed up and I looked like some sort of hamster with a big fat potato stuffed in each cheek. I looked through the instructions of the pred as I've never had the chance to before (a ... Read on »

I'm waiting for the man by Rich Posted Mon 30 Jun 2008 12:00am To begin with lets talk polyclinics. Following my whole-hearted backing of said clinics I went on to watch a news report that outlined how they are a part of the systematic disassembling of the NHS. The report suggested that they would work on a patient drop-in basis, with a high turnover of doctors, thus reducing waiting times and continuity si ... Read on »
Almost cut my hair. by Rich Posted Tue 28 Apr 2009 12:00am I should have phoned the hospital last friday. But, I didn't. I should have phoned the hospital yesterday. But, I didn't. I should have phoned them today. But, I haven't. Why? My, thankfully short-lived, drug-induced flare-up has settled down (touch wood. Not cloth.). My consultant wanted a week-on update from when I spoke to him mid-flare on ... Read on »

Steroid Wars . . . by Ron Patient Expert Posted Thu 28 Mar 2013 7:11am Back in the early 90s Prednisolone tablets were on my repeat list and had been for some time. Stranded away from home for weeks – long story – my health deteriorated dramatically  and, in the absence of any overt symptoms, I started a course of Prednisolone, 30mg daily. My response was even more dramatic than my decline, and I improved ra ... Read on »
