What is Prednisone?

Prednisone is a corticosteroid medication used to treat a variety of conditions such as allergies, asthma, arthritis, autoimmune diseases, and certain types of cancer. It works by reducing inflammation and suppressing the immune system's response.

Taking Prednisone properly helps ensure maximum therapeutic benefits.

Prednisone dosage varies depending on the condition being treated and individual factors. It's crucial to follow the prescribed dosage exactly as directed by your healthcare provider.

Administration: Prednisone is usually taken orally, with or without food. Tablets can be taken with a full glass of water.

Timing: It's typically taken once daily, preferably in the morning, to minimize sleep disturbances.

Duration: Prednisone treatment may be short-term or long-term, depending on the condition.

Abruptly stopping prednisone can lead to withdrawal symptoms, so it's important to follow your healthcare provider's instructions for tapering off the medication if needed.


Medical History: Inform your healthcare provider about any medical conditions you have, especially if you have a history of infections, diabetes, osteoporosis, or mental health issues.

Interactions: Discuss with your healthcare provider any other medications, supplements, or herbal remedies you are taking, as they may interact with prednisone.

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: Prednisone should be used with caution during pregnancy and breastfeeding, as it may pose risks to the fetus or infant. Discuss the risks and benefits with your healthcare provider.

Side Effects of Prednisone

Common side effects of prednisone may include:

  • Increased appetite
  • Weight gain
  • Mood changes
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Increased sweating
  • Acne
  • Thinning skin
  • Easy bruising
  • Slowed healing of wounds
  • Increased susceptibility to infections
  • Changes in vision

Less common but more severe side effects may include:

  • High blood pressure
  • High blood sugar levels
  • Osteoporosis
  • Adrenal insufficiency
  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma
  • Increased risk of certain infections
  • Mood changes, including depression or anxiety

Rarely, allergic reactions such as swelling, rash, or difficulty breathing
If you experience any severe or concerning side effects, contact your healthcare provider immediately.


Can I drink alcohol while taking prednisone?

It's generally advisable to avoid alcohol while taking prednisone, as it may increase the risk of certain side effects such as stomach irritation and liver problems.

Can I take prednisone with food?

Prednisone can be taken with or without food. However, taking it with food may help reduce stomach upset.

How long does it take for prednisone to work?

The onset of action of prednisone varies depending on the condition being treated. Some people may experience relief within a few hours to days, while others may require several days to weeks for the full effects to be felt.

Can I stop taking prednisone suddenly?

It's important not to stop taking prednisone abruptly, as it can lead to withdrawal symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, joint pain, and fever. If you need to discontinue prednisone, your healthcare provider will typically advise you on a tapering schedule to gradually reduce the dosage.

I've been a Canadian Med Center customer for about 6 years now. In all that time there was never once that I considered taking my business elsewhere. They do a great job and the people they contract with are also super.

Always appreciate their prompt service but especially appreciate their hanging in there when there was difficulty getting my doctor to renew my prescription!
