About Prednisone

What is Prednisone?

Prednisone is a synthetic corticosteroid that works as an effective immunosuppressant drug. Immunosuppressant drugs are used when the body’s own immune system is attacking the body. These attacks are brought on by autoimmune diseases. A prednisone prescription is usually given to reduce inflammation in the body and to reduce symptoms of autoimmune diseases and disorders such as arthritis, allergies, cancer and lupus among others.

How do I take prednisone?

Prednisone comes as a tablet, or a liquid to be taken orally. It can be obtained at your local pharmacy with a prescription. Prednisone is usually taken with food one to four times a day or once every other day. Your personal dosing schedule will depend on your condition and on how you respond to treatment. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take prednisone exactly as directed by your doctor.

If taking the concentrated solution, use the specially marked dropper that comes with the medication to measure your dose. The concentrated solution can be mixed with juice, other flavored liquids, or soft foods such as applesauce.

Your doctor may change your prednisone prescription frequently during your treatment to ensure that you are taking the lowest dose possible and still maintain efficacy. Your doctor may also need to change your dose if you experience unusual stress on your body such as surgery, illness, infection, or a severe asthma attack. Tell your doctor about any changes in your symptoms or health while taking prednisone.

If you are taking prednisone to treat a chronic disease, it may help control your symptoms but will not cure the disease. Continue to take prednisone even if you feel well. Do not stop using this medication without the approval of your doctor.

What if I forget to take a dose of prednisone?

If you miss a dose of prednisone, take the missed dose as soon as you can. If it’s almost time for your next dose when you remember, call your doctor or health professional first. Follow the instructions given to you by your doctor. Do not take a double dose of prednisone without consulting with your health professional first.

What happens if I overdose on prednisone?

Signs of overdose on prednisone may include burning or itching skin, weakness, psychosis, elevated blood pressure, fatigue, worsening of health conditions, convulsions, deafness, swelling of the lower legs or feet and nervousness. If you or someone you know has overdosed on prednisone call the Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222. If the patient has collapsed or stopped breathing, contact 911 emergency services.

Before taking prednisone, tell your doctor if:

  • You are allergic to prednisone, any other medications.

  • You are taking amiodarone (Cordarone, Pacerone), blood thinners such as warfarin (Coumadin), antifungals such as fluconazole (Diflucan), itraconazole (Sporanox), ketoconazole (Nizoral) and voriconazole (Vfend), aprepitant (Emend); aspirin; carbamazepine (Carbatrol, Epitol); cimetidine (Tagamet), clarithromycin (Biaxin, in Prevpak), cyclosporine (Neoral), delavirdine (Rescriptor); diltiazem (Cardizem, Dilacor, Tiazac), dexamethasone (Decadron, Dexpak); diuretics, efavirenz (Sustiva), fluoxetine (Prozac, Sarafem), fluvoxamine (Luvox), griseofulvin (Fulvicin, Grifulvin), atazanavir (Reyataz), indinavir (Crixivan), lopinavir (in Kaletra), nelfinavir (Viracept), ritonavir (Norvir, in Kaletra), and saquinavir (Fortovase, Invirase), hormonal contraceptives, lovastatin (Altocor, Mevacor), diabetes medications, nefazodone; nevirapine (Viramune), phenobarbital, phenytoin (Dilantin, Phenytek), rifabutin (Mycobutin), rifampin (Rifadin, Rimactane), Zoloft, troleandomycin (TAO), verapamil (Calan, Covera), and zafirlukast (Accolate).

  • You are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding.

Because it suppresses the immune system, prednisone may diminish your body’s ability to fight infection and may prevent you from developing symptoms if you get sick. Avoid sick people and wash your hands often while taking this medication.

Be sure to avoid those who have chicken pox or measles. Call your doctor immediately if you think you may have been exposed to chicken pox or measles.

Do not have any vaccinations while taking prednisone without talking to your doctor first.

If you have surgery, including dental surgery, or need emergency medical treatment, tell the medical staff if you are taking or have recently stopped taking prednisone. Carry a card or wear a bracelet with this information in case you are unable to speak in an emergency.

Should I follow a special diet while taking prednisone?

You may be instructed to follow a low-salt, high potassium, or high calcium diet. Your doctor may also prescribe or recommend a calcium or potassium supplement. Ask your doctor about eating grapefruit and drinking grapefruit juice while you are taking this medication.

What are the possible side effects of taking prednisone?

Short term side effects from taking prednisone include high blood glucose levels, fluid retention, insomnia, euphoria and in rare cases, mania. Long term effects may include Cushing’s syndrome, steroid dementia syndrome, weight gain, osteoporosis, glaucoma and cataracts, type 2 diabetes.

Severe side effects may include:

Severe facial swelling, infections, anxiety, black stool, mouth sores or dry mouth, abdominal pain, peptic ulcer and blurred vision.

These are not all the possible side effects from taking prednisone. Call your doctor immediately if experiencing severe or persistent side effects.

Adrenal dependency is inevitable after taking prednisone for an extended period. This may cause the body to temporarily be unable to manufacture its own corticosteroids. Never stop taking prednisone abruptly. This could lead to an Addison crisis. Follow instructions given to you by your doctor. It may take weeks or even months for the body to begin naturally manufacturing corticosteroids again.
