Prednisone with antibiotics

Common Questions and Answers about Prednisone with antibiotics


Avatar f tn Called my neurologist, who told me that prednisone has a potency of about 20% of dexamethasone, which has a documented interaction with Dilantin and the prednisone could have depleted my Dilantin levels. So I’m not here on the board to fuss about my general practitioner, but…is an interaction between prednisone and Dilantin common knowledge in this community? Also, how do you research Rx interactions? Thanks!
Avatar f tn Prednisone is NOT an antibiotic, you can't just go giving any medication without even knowing what you are treating....prednisone use in cats often leads to diabetes. Please describe what's wrong and I will try and help with some suggestions, I know yr only trying to help them but inappropriate use of meds can be fatal...
Avatar f tn i was diagnosed with asthma 3 yrs ago. i still have symptoms everyday and attacks 2-3x a week. i've had a increase in symptoms in the last several months even to the point where it has become a quality of life issue for me. i recently asked my doctor about trying a very low dose of daily pred to releive my symptoms, to which he replied," it'll kill you." i figure my asthma will likely kill me long before the pred does.
1716896 tn?1308884362 So, when prednisone is prescribed to alleviate an allergic reaction and then upon stopping prednisone a rash flares up "with a vengeance" - ----1]Could it be an allergy to a bacteria, since I never developed a fever when my hand got infected and then spread and then swelled up my face, and I never finished the whole dosage of antibiotics? ------2]What type of doctor should one seek, besides a dermatologist or an allergist?
Avatar m tn I just got off the phone with the Doc, she said the prednisone would be OK and go on with it. It waas a month and a half after tx that my ears plugged First they said I had a lot of fluid in them and it felt that way. It sounds like a head full of locusts. 2wks of antibiotics, 2 different ones and my hearing had not improved.
89559 tn?1234883865 While on the prednisone and antibiotics, I seem to run a low grade fever towards later afternoon/evening and start feeling crumby. Is this the affect of the prednisone? I figure, I will do the course of the treatment and if not feeling better,I'm going to ask for a referral! I thought a person should feel better after 48 hrs. of antibiotic treatment? "'s been 3 days now. HELP PLEASE!!
Avatar n tn I'm sooo itchy all over but i don't want to take prednisone if it's going to make the molluscum worse. Is the prednisone a bad idea?
608104 tn?1352590753 I am a 70 year old woman with ADHD. My brain is aging along with the rest of me. With the help of the prednisone and a Z pak for a secondary infection and convalescence, the respiratory problems are gone, but I'm coping with the side effects of the prednisone including agitation, mood swings, greater distractibility, disorganization, incredible appetite increases, and gastritis.
Avatar n tn Over the last year and a half she has been on two week courses of amoxicillin, baytril, clavamox, Remadyl, and prednisone. The vet did a sterile bladder urine culture (through a needle) with sensitivity which came back nonspecific (a huge bill for nothing). The vet says there is not evidence of it being a yeast infection, he sees bacteria on the microscope slide. I am at a loss to know what to do.
Avatar m tn the steroid sprays are the way to go, either way, it's FAR better on your system than long term oral prednisone! Also, a good decongestant with a moistening agent, like Guafenisen (but be wary if you have high blood pressure/athlerosclerosis issues, as it can put you at risk for heart attacks)...All this should be monitored by ONE really good ENT Md! First and formost, find a good one, and stick with it! Also, I found acupressure (head/face) and acupuncture to be extremely helpful, also.
Avatar f tn Sometimes my eyes are hard to open in the morning because of the swelling. In October I was diagnosed with chronic ortitis then with tonsillitis I was give two doses of antibiotics from the Italian doctors here but their medical system here is very different from America and the treatment was not very successful. I was then given 7 other medications and other pain relievers but nothing helped. Then finally they tested me for mono, which I was positive with.
Avatar n tn my 9 year old dog has been on prednisone for 6 weeks for ITP and we are weaning her off now.
1356959 tn?1488979548 Hello everyone,I am in my 4th day taking Roaccutane with prednisone. I have started to get bladder discomfort,has anyone suffered from this before. I used to have tract infection but this one comes from the tablets. Please help.
Avatar m tn The Prednisone I took in combination with antibiotics finally eliminate my sinus infection (it was a side of the treatement and I have suffered a lot from that), since then I don't have any more the sinus problem and don't have anymore fever (only once in few days), so I am not using any more Paracetamol or other fever reducer.
Avatar f tn Now I am back on antibiotics so MS Dr. can't start me on Prednisone again until I am infection free. Has anyone used the solul-medrol or prednisone and good luck with it? I thought I would be good for a long time, but only a few days? Don't know if it is all because of the strep or if that is all the longer it helps for. The Dr. also said they might try Plasmapheresis but can't do that either until I am well.
Avatar f tn I tried cutting my cat back and she lost weight and threw up--so she has to stay on the original prescription or she will do exactly what yours is doing. Work with your vet on understanding these circle of Prednisone. I fought her going on it for a long time , but finally decided I would worry about the side effects another day. Right now she is feeling great. Keep us posted. She is a senior now and with that comes constant surveillance. My cat thinks I am her stalker !!!!
1477978 tn?1289505731 Thank you for your reply. I was recently dx with SLE and was on a short term Prednisone treatment until my follow-up. I'm 37 now but when I was around 13-14yrs old I had "osteochondritis" in my knees and was pretty bad and the Dr. way back then put me on Methylprednisolone for a short time.
Avatar n tn When I'm triggered by allergies - a lower dosage of prednisone works (about 40mg) with other allergy meds (nasoqart cq, and Symbocort are my lifesavers!). Hope that helps!
1549643 tn?1495762953 I'm okay on prednisone, I can get out now, keep up with my housework, and all that. Not able to work but at least I can do things. So how do I give that medication up?? I don't want the crap but I'm seeing no options. I've had Vit D def for quite a while now. B12 as well but it went back to normal and stayed that way after treatment. Low end of normal though. I am on a prescription for the Vit D.
Avatar f tn I know it's a pain to go and be seen when you have symptoms when you can buy otc yeast treatments but you are immunosuppressed with the long term prednisone so it's well worth proper testing to make sure you aren't having issues with a strain of yeast that needs more aggressive treatments too. they can send a swab off to the lab to check. if you are prone to yeast issues in general, check into either fem dophilus by jarrow or rephresh proB ( forget that company name ).
Avatar f tn So when I get a major flare I take prednisone for a few days to get the flare under control. I get shots on regular basis in my back. So I started to take prednisone again, and got a shot for pain in my shoulder, when the cushings syndrome came back full force. Every symptom. It has been a month now, and the symptoms have only increased. My eyes even feel puffy from swelling, as my wrists now. I am so uncomfortable. The fog in my mind is thick.
218977 tn?1230700972 however, I wanted to see whether their was any information regarding this issue. I performed a Google search and was unsuccessful in narrowing it down to my specific concern. Any information would be most appreciated. Lastly, for each of you living with HCV, keep your spirits high. Telaprevir and other medicines will radically change the SOC in the very near future. Vertex has indicated that it expects to file for a NDA (new drug application) in early 2011.
Avatar f tn I have 10 mg Prednisone tabs with me but the directions are to take 40 mg for angioedema and gradually decrease dosage. I know that if I take this dosage I will be up all night but am really uncertain about how much I should take. Using Aveeno to sooth the welts with minimal effect. I empathize with anyone going through this experience. Any suggestions appreciated. Am thinking of thinking an immunologist since the allergist was absolutely no health.
Avatar n tn Can my asthma meds like prednisone make it worse? Becuse every time I get a infection I end up on prednisone pills too along with everything else. Do these make the antibiotic less effective?
Avatar f tn My husband was hospitalized with an inner ear infection which was causing dizziness, vomitting, and severe ear pain. He was discharged with antibiotics, ear drops, and a 5 day dose of prednisone. He was unable to hear ANYTHING from this ear. He had a follow up with the ENT and they inserted a tube as they thought that would remove the pressure and allow the eardrum to move. He still cannot not hear anything and went back the the ENT and audiologist today.
Avatar f tn Some heart palpitations, but not as often as with the higher dosage, but not feeling myself that much. Anyway, I think I may have a sinus infection - lots of sinus drainage and feeling really down. But with the thyroid problem, it is hard to tell what is from what these days. I have not been to the doctor for the sinus thing as they say if it is viral, they can't do anything, but it doesn't seem to be going away.
Avatar m tn Went to the dr today for a bite and he says it's either a bee sting or a wasp sting he gave me .20 mg of prednisone 3 pills for 10 days....why is that? I thought I should get an antibiotic.
Avatar f tn I'm assuming it's all related since I never suffered with sinus issues previously. I also have Lupus. Recently I started a pred burst with 60 mg x 5 d to 40mg on down. I'm currently on the 5th day and it isn't slowing down the mucus production well. Before when my Dr. would give me a break with a pred burst for this miserable mucus constant problem I would get some relief. This time it doesn't seemto be working. What could be going on.
