Common Questions and Answers about Dose of prednisone for gout


Avatar f tn The bone and skin issues and the vast majority of other possible side effects are associated with long term use <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>. If you need it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a week or so it isn't that big <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> a deal. I know that it is not recommended during TX because it does inhibit the immune system significantly - depending on dose. I have read of maybe 2 cases where it was suspected that big doses of prednisone may have contributed to a re-activation of HCV.
Avatar n tn I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who is having the problem (well I'm not glad) and I thank you gus for the information. We must all detox the cure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> HepC out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> our systems. I believe that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gout</span> is a side effect. Hang in there guys, study, research with love and let's keep each other informed.
461838 tn?1255793816 Had a horrible experience with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> and treatment. Was only supposed to take it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 10 days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gout</span>, but a careless Kaiser doctor had me on for 30 days. Man, it turned me into a first-class *****!
Avatar n tn I took <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 12 days about a month and a half ago. Last week just sitting down in the evening, I noticed my ankles looked a little pain nothing. Since that day i've noticed that when i wake up in the morning, the ankles look much skinnier. Within a half hour of waking up i think they become slightly bigger. I can't really tell if they're swollen or not but they are definitely bigger than when i first wake up. They stay big the whole day.
Avatar m tn During each of the major bouts I was on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>, 6MP and Remicade (2nd round) Remicade casued joint problems after the 1st year <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> use. Dose was increased up to 15mg/kg at the highest. Took it for 3 years total, before surgery. After 2006 surgery, Remicade was stopped, Crohn's was gone, but had a flare of gout for the first time in the hospital. The gout went away. Since then, I have high uric acid show up in my blood work a couple of times a year, I usually get checked monthly.
Avatar f tn If I take the prednisone along with the methotrexate I know it can help me gain remission with the RA but if I take it, there goes my eye! I wonder about a lesser dose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> and what will happen to my eye. I don't know what to do.
199177 tn?1332183097 The Chinese herb Bupleurum has been used for 2,000 years to rehabilitate the liver. Traditionally, Bupleurum-based formulas are used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> extended periods <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> time in cases <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> chronic hepatitis and other liver disorders. These classic formulas include Minor Bupleurum; Bupleurum and Paeony; and, Bupleurum and "Dragon Bone".

212059 tn?1292942129 Yes, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> is a steroid. I was on it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a month because <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> an ear infection. While on the prednisone, it totally stopped my PVCs. They returned shortly after the medication ran out. I'm not sure why the prednisone stopped them. Maybe the steroid "strengthened" the heart, or maybe it was a placebo from the steroids making me feel like I was literally 18 years old again.
429155 tn?1205676864 30, back to bed, and after a lot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> thrashing about, holy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> holies I sleep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 3 hrs, wake up and dressing gown is drenched in sweat, back to bed get another 1hrs sleep, then up at 07:30. It's now Monday. Monday 0945.Am feeling a bit better now, go see boss at work to explain ( goes ok ). then have a drive round, I find I am noticing things I took for granted before, things are in much sharper focus. Although I had real bad stomach cramps, the Flu like symtoms have all but gone.
Avatar n tn 5 mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> equivalents, and low-intermediate–dose exposure as less than 7.5 mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> equivalents or inhaled corticosteroids." My guess is that if you are no longer using prednisone, you probably won't get another afib episode.

Avatar m tn The odds with current retreatment are to low <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me go through that again. Upping dose is absolutley out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the question <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me. Word has it vx-950 is the magic bullet. I start clinical trial in January. One more shot at svr.
444337 tn?1428077110 i've also had a brutal case <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gout</span> in both feet <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about the same time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> which I cannot take pain medication. don't know if the gout is causing the fever or the tx. currently bedridden and cannot walk at all. kidney doc said I can't take anything for the gout or fever and I'm in pure misery. only sleep a couple of hours a night.
Avatar m tn We discussed a variety of possibilities (cellulitis, Lyme disease, hepatitis, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gout</span>) none <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> which appears to fit. She said Hepatitis fits some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my symptoms (but not the swelling), so she did a blood test to eliminate that (haven't gotten the results yet). She flat-out told me she was stumped.
Avatar n tn Have any of you other guys tried the florinef or cortisone while taking the T4? Jimlow , you said low doses <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> helped but high doses or none was bad. have you tried folrinef and are you currently on the T4? Juanita, I know you take armour. Have they ever given you any steroid ? Also I was wondering why they keep increasing your dose. The fact that you adapt after two agonizing weeks is scary.
Avatar f tn So lately I've been taking 2.5mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> (which makes symptoms vanish, even on low dose) and eating extremely healthy. I'm hoping it just goes away, but I have no idea how to treat it. Should I just let it be inflamed, as doctors say, each night? Or should I stay the course? Please help.
Avatar n tn Due to this, I demanded a biopsy and the FSGS diagnosis was found. I was on a high dose <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a year (100 mg daily) plus 100 mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> cyclosporin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about 6 months. This really did not do anything for me other than cause me many nasty side effects, which made me feel worse than having FSGS, so I asked the nephrologist to allow me to get off. I was slowly weaned off the meds, but remained on the lisinopril.
Avatar n tn even low-grade congestive heart failure can cause swelling, though it would be unusual for it to occur suddenly and around the same time as diagnosing and controlling diabetes. One other way-out-there thought: did your husband also get diagnosed with high cholesterol and/or start taking Lipitor or some other cholesterol-lowering drug?
Avatar f tn My primary has ordered blood test for RA, lupus, ms,<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gout</span> and other things. All the test came back several times negative <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> these things.I have recently been seeing a Rheumatologist since 2010 and she also has done a barrage of blood work and xrays that have come back inconclusive. Yet I have had to have fluid drained from my knees that looked like softballs and been given cortisone injections.
Avatar n tn The condition may be preceded by an infection of some kind and the presence of polymyositis has been linked to the presence <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> some cancers. Symptoms The symptoms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> polymyositis are similar <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> people of all ages, but the disease usually develops more abruptly in children than in adults.
Avatar n tn Four days of 10 mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> example. Then he might try a diuretic, such as furosemide <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> Lasix, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a week. All the time taking precise observations of the swelling. of course those suggestions would all have to be written in an imaginary novel. Don't give up. You have to find a physician that takes you seriously and has a genuine interest in your problem. They do exist.
712042 tn?1254572809 I underwent another cath as a way <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> a diagnosis by exclusion. They were pretty confident <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the diagnosis they were to confirm. In the process of testing ( which consisted of adenosine, then recovery/opening with acetylcholine) I arrested and it took them a couple of minutes to get me back. I was awake/conscious for most it and was even pleased when the docs were able to reproduce my symptoms!
487621 tn?1322613297 They started me on Levothyroxine 50mcg. I also started on a statin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the cholesterol and allopurinol <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gout</span>. I feel like I am left out in the dark with no flashlight! After being on the med for a month, my family doctor says he will test the blood in another six weeks. Shouldn't I be checked every six weeks until it's normal? I am still tired and run down, wanting to sleep all day long.
544292 tn?1268886268 The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose). Tramadol is more complex than other opiate and opiate-like medications because it also appears to have actions on the GABAergic, noradrenergic, and serotonergic systems in the brain.
Avatar f tn he wakes up the next day hurting all over, joints swelled, feet hurting, shoulders, you name it. Can't get out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> bed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> another 3 or 4 days. His RA test came back negative. of course his appetite isn't all that great but he's managing with all other sides. My question this how it's going to be the rest of the 48 weeks? How can he keep going on like this? Will it ever get any better?
Avatar n tn I have no intention on following up with this doctor, I received a blood transfusion in 1981 and have no history of illegal drug use or alcoholism (I don't drink at all, it killed my Dad). His treatment <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> me was unkind and I asked <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a copy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my records. Here's my information...
Avatar m tn The Rheumatologist did a lot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> blood work, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> things like Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis, all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> which was negative. He also had me try a few different NSAID (1 week on high dose of aleve, 1 week on voltaren, 1 week on celebrex, and 2 weeks on mobic).
Avatar n tn In my case, the benign explanation (thus far) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a sharp persistent pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> several weeks duration is an inflammation <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the costal bone bordering the heart. Huh? No jokes about bleeding heart liberals, please. Well, if you insist....
223152 tn?1346981971 Approval of tela and boce will be a huge win <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> our community after all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> these years <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> waiting. They will allow an enormous amount <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> people to svr in the coming years while even more effective drugs are developed with hopefully less toxicity.
2040403 tn?1329850640 When I told him how my ankle/foot swelled up, turned red and had a burning sensation but almost completely alleviated my sciatica pain, he looked at me like I was from another planet and informed me that this was NOT a side effect <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> this drug and that I must have had something else like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gout</span> or Cellulitis going on at the time. After a brief discussion, we decided together that I would try the Neurontin again as it was very effective for me.
