I was dealing with a great blaze for two weeks. It did not seem to disappear until I got prednisone. It worked like a miracle. After not being able to walk on my own for almost two weeks, I was up and running the day after taking this medication.
I have never written a review on anything really, but I thought it was important in this case. I have been dealing with arthritis for probably 15 years. I was essentially given 2 choices, go in Allopurinol and hope they prevent me from getting sprouts. However, I would have to take a pill every day, and this medication has upset my stomach in the past. Option 2 is to treat an outbreak when it occurs with the medication, and I went this route, Colcichine which is the medication to treat this. The problem is that it never seems to work, and I recently had a terrible gout attack. I got Prednisone, and it really worked miracles. I was probably 70% better after 1 full day, and now almost 100% after 3 days. I am more than satisfied with this medication!
My 3 year old son has skin problems. We tried almost everything! Finally the doc gave him prednisone! Finally his skin is starting to heal! Medicines make it a terror, but it’s worth it.
I couldn’t walk and bending was almost impossible, so I started with prednisone 50 mg. It was prescribed for 4 days and in 2 days I felt alive again! All the pain disappeared. I would personally take it every day if there was no side effects. Its a miracle drug.
If you can not handle more ibuprofen for the swelling, I recommend it. My glands swelled and the only thing that helped was prednisone. As for side effects – you are always be hungry and may have an upset stomach. So you can gain weight, but this side effect can be reduced if you take the same dose of medicine throughout the day, not all at once.
I had a toothache after dental surgery to remove a bad tooth. The pain was in the tooth next to the tooth that was extracted. I couldn’t bite on it even month after surgery! Tried ibuprofen, but it didn’t touch the pain. Then the doctor gave me a packet of Prednisone. The next morning I was able to chew normally again. There is no pain after that at all.
I’ve got psoriasis on my hands and doctor was prescribed me a prednisone. So yea, it cleared my psoriasis in a few weeks, but the side effects of this medication are worse than psoriasis. Terrible!
