Common Questions and Answers about Ibuprofen and prednisone


Avatar f tn I stopped for three months because I started prednisone. One day I tool it and had a moderate allergic reaction. My scalp, face, and neck started to itching severely then just about everywhere else. My face swelled then I went to the ED.
1182699 tn?1297578384 day, either really strong beats followed by weak ones, or my PVC's/PAC's, I will take an advil and I usually start feeling better. I mentioned this to my PCP once and he said Ibuprofen has many effects on the body, it's not just a fever reducer/pain reliever so it very well could be effecting the heart. It makes me wonder if it has anything to do with blood pressure (although mine is usually very low 90/60). Any thoughts?
Avatar f tn About a year and a half ago, I had a severe asthma episode and coschondrits for the first time. I was put on a 2 week coarse of Prednisone along with ibuprofen. By the end I had developed an issue swallowing pills. Even my small thyroid ones felt like they got stuck. Then it progressed to coughing up small hard bits of food, severe reflux, etc. After too much testing, the problem mostly resolved except for lingering occasional esophageal spasms and the thought that some was just hypersesivity.
Avatar n tn tremendos sencetivity in my ears like exposed nerves. So I went to ear and nose specialist and my hearing and all the tests including mri was fine. they prescribed prednezone. it helped that was 6 month ago. May be I should go to a neurologist ...
Avatar f tn OK here's my theory, your cortisol went up in reaction to the prednisone and it took up to a month for the cortisol to build up in your tissues and to actually develop the cushing symptoms, and then by the time you had your cortisol checked it was normal again in your blood, but the cortisol in your tissues was still accumulated and took a few weeks or however long it was to wear off.
Avatar m tn I have taken prednisone on and off for years at the tapering dose you are discribing. I needed it dermatology issues. Since rashes are a possible sx, I discussed it with my hepatologist and she said that it would be ok to take that small short term dose on tx. Before HCV, it was my treatment of choice for my skin issues, but because it suppresses the immune system, I now consider it a treatment of last resort. You are still UND, so it seems there was no negative impact on your tx.
Avatar m tn Hi Jon, My understanding of Prednisone is that it is used for the flare ups of Multiple Sclerosis and other autoimmune disorders to include infections. Prednisone destroys the immune system over a period of time of extended use. I know a lot of people that have been on it and are worse off for it. Solumedrol which is a high dosed steroid is used for major flare ups of MS.
Avatar f tn egads, woke up at 3 with ON and eyes hurt so bad am about to toss my cookies before I even have them. got out my new bottle of prednisone that I religiously carry with and the directions simply say : "take as directed" grrrrr that was one prescription I failed to make a copy of before I gave it to the pharmacist back in AR. Anyone on pred that would remember the doses?
86664 tn?1291561395 I've had just about every side effect in the book and then some, and I haven't needed any opiate based pain killers. Ibuprofen, acetaminophen, naproxen, anti-histamines, moisturizing lotions, sleep aids (lunesta), anti-depressants and prednisone? Saure. But opiates? Nah. Treatment usually causes fatigue, exhaustion, irritability, insomnia, mental confusion, depression, hair loss, itching, skin rash, dandruff, psoriasis, anemia, neutropenia etc etc.
1125622 tn?1295423718 Was treated with a single dose (60 mg) of prednisone, as well as a breathing treatment and ibuprofen. I recently had the flu, and I was nervous going to the hospital, I dont want a recurance of infection, or to pick up a new infection! My question is this: How much impat would that one dose have on my immune system, also I thought with steroids you allways had to taper down doses? Thank you so much for any answer!
483733 tn?1326802046 I am glad that there is something they feel can help and that I don't need to go on Prednisone as I took way too much of that back when I had ulcerative colitis. I am hoping and praying that this drug will do the trick and start to relieve my pain and fatigue. I don't have copies of my blood work but will get them when I go back for my follow up in 8 weeks. Anyone out there who has this I welcome any advice you might have.
Avatar n tn 2 mg colchicine and 1600 mg ibuprofen medications. All the tests they ran on the fluid and his blood were negative, so the cause is assumed to be an undetected virus or idiopathic. His EC and EKG after 8 days seemed fine (fluid mostly gone), so the ibuprofen was reduced to 800 mg/day. He was also allowed to resume exercise (moderate walking on a treadmill). After only five days, his symptoms--fever and shoulder pain--returned and the next EC showed that the fluid had increased.
Avatar n tn For about 10 days now I have had flu like symptoms. Fisrt day was fever and sweating with acheing joints and some vomiting. Days 2-10 swollen tonsils with white patches (extremely painful). Now my uvula is swollen and sitting on my tounge. Ok so heres what I have been using to combat this.
Avatar f tn Usually treatment begins with application of corticosteroid cream, and if this fails tablets and injections are used. Some doctors also prescribe the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine. You may also take any anti-allergic medication such as an anti-histamine. Please discuss this with your doctor. Pain in lupus can be due to lupus arthritis, or due to pain in muscles and tendons around the joint, or it may be unrelated to lupus.
Avatar n tn today called neurologist again complained about earfullness tinnitus with topamax i have had daily headaches am n 75 mg topamax and am on prednisone have hd daily headaches tinnitus and ear fullness for three weeks without relief am frustrated and taking daily migraine med migralex an ibuprofen
Avatar n tn Orbital myositis is extremely responsive to prednisone. Medications like ibuprofen can help also (tylenol not really), but prednisone is much more effective. You need to find another eye doctor to consider this diagnosis and prescribe prednisone. Note also that a condition called optic neuritis can cause pain with eye movement but does not cause the eye to get red nor the lids to swell. I don't think you have optic neuritis.
Avatar f tn They had started to dry and crust over and heal. And I was happy. Fast forward to now, almost two months later, and I have what seems to be a recurrence of the same symptoms in the exact same areas. I "caught" this case of shingles early, having experienced what the beginning of shingles was like for me. However, when I was to see another different doctor due to being out of town...he and the PA said I was probably misdiagnosed for having shingles.
Avatar n tn My eyes are often matted together in the morning and the top eye lids are puffy. I went to see my optomoetrist and she said that I have optic nerve damage in both eyes but no sign of infection that she could see. I thought that optic nerve damage should have shown up on the MRI. I called my doctor to tell him and he has scheduled me an appointment for November 30 to see an opthalmologist. I'm afraid that by this time my condition will be out of control!
Avatar f tn All I do is drink warm water with lemon and honey I did some neti pot morning and before bedtime and took a warm bath morning and bedtime.
Avatar f tn ) It all started out of the blue, I woke up one day with joint pain EVERYWHERE! Within a couple days after many hot baths, heating blankets and ibuprofen, I saw my family doctor. This was when that swine flu was going around so I was concerned I was coming down sick as the pain felt much like those pesky body aches you get when you have a cold or the flu, but worse. I had a bunch of bloodwork which all came back normal.
Avatar m tn I have had slightly higher uric acid #'s in the past however my last test was normal including CBC. Doctors always give me colchicine, prednisone, and indocin and tell me it should go away shortly. In the past one doctor said he almost thinks it's not gout because the medication should work within a couple days. The weird thing is that sometimes the pain will be unbearable and I have to lay in bed for 5 days then all of a sudden my foot feels incredibly good like nothing even happened.
Avatar n tn My doc tried just about everything before he let me hsve the Percs. Ibuprofen, Zanaflex, Flexeril, Imiprimine, Etodolac, Prednisone, Vicodan, Napoxen, Ultram...We tried a TENS unit, CT scan, Xrays, bone scan and most recently a nerve block injection from an anastesiologist. Everything looks normal but the pain is still there. Since last Aug I have taken around 525 doses (5mg) of Percocet. Needless to say, I have a problem.
Avatar m tn Dr. prescribed 300 mg Gabapentin along with Vicodin and ibuprofen 800mg for pain.Is this going to get better,stay same,progress? I looked at a Dr.Timothy Helm's Low Level Laser Therapy,do you have an opinion?Any info or answers are greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn I definately do think I have SLE, as many of the symptoms can not be explained any other way (my post was so long before, I realized I didnt mention that I have the malar rash(butterfly rash), and have been Dxd with Sjorgrens and Raynauds!!). I know that prednisone is used to treat MS as well, so Im happy right now that I am on a strong taper to get ALL symptoms under control. I have to say though, that that hasnt happened yet - I actually feel pretty lousy these past few days...
1011295 tn?1320874572 I was taking more than that, but the pain is so great and anything less is just intolerable. I have ulcers, so taking ibuprofen is prohibited. Thank goodness, I rely solely on my faith, or I'd already be buried. I think the only thing keeping me alive is my trust in the Lord. I don't know any other explanation as to why I haven't already ruined my liver, other than the good Lord knows I wouldn't be able to survive without my Tylenol!haha Thanks for caring.
Avatar f tn Oral prednisone helps to relieve the pain, but by the time I taper off the pain is back in full force and seems worse than before. I've tried ibuprofen, naproxen, indomethacin, mobic and celebrex. The celebrex seems to help some, but I still have severe intermittent pains accompanied by scalp sensitivity to the point that it interferes with lying my head on a pillow and washing my hair. Do you have any insight into what type of medicine to try next?
Avatar f tn So lab draws every 2 days, he is complaining of stomach pain and bad joint pain. Week 4 hits....fever stays at 104.5 ....even on tylenol and ibuprofen!! One sunday Morning in 5/2011 i wake up to my son crying hysterically( 6:30 am ) , i ask what is wrong, he tells me....I have to go potty...but my legs wont work, So i pick him up and we race to the ER....where he is promptly admitted into the pediatric ward of the hosp!
Avatar f tn Prograf helps patients who have had a liver/kidney transplant protect their new organ and prevent it from being rejected by the body. This medicine can cause the amount of potassium in your blood-stream to increase. For this reason you should avoid large amounts of foods that have a high potassium content, for example dried fruit, bananas, tomatoes and low sodium salt, while you are taking this medicine, also avoid potassium supplements. I had a bad reaction from eating these foods.
Avatar m tn It is not vertigo anyway so it was useless medication for me. The only thing that will work sometimes is Ibuprofen 800mg. Sometimes it works and sometimes not. Not supposed to take it though due to gastritis. Imitrex and the other migraine med make me sick so I can't take that either. One time I took a medication, can't remember the name, it was high caffeine in it, it was a prescription med and it took the migraine right out.
Avatar m tn One night I had a bad headache from eye strain (I am a chronic gamer) and I took some Ibuprofen, a medication that I took very often before the welts started. Within an hour or so I had a dramatic reaction to the medicine. I got these giant welts on my face and body, the likes of which I had never seen before. It scared me because I thought my throat could potentially close. Luckily my throat never felt like it was swelling at all.
