Side effects of prednisone in babies

Common Questions and Answers about Side effects of prednisone in babies


Avatar f tn He weighs only 25 lbs. After the first two 20 MG doses of Prednisone, I cut his dosage in half to 10 MG. Today I gave him only 5 MG and will obviously skip his evening dose and that will be the end of it. But his panting and shaking are worse tonight... it is scary to watch.
Avatar n tn I have completed one 40 day cycle of hcg and I for one, love it. No side effects to date. I had more energy, slept without the use of my rx sleeping pills, felt better than I had in years, and yes, I lost 20 lbs and many inches although I did not measure at the beginning. I lost 4 inches in 2 weeks and overall two pant sizes. Very noticable. I'm looking forward to a second cycle of it. Plus, there are so many women around here that now want to take it, I'm planning a seminar.
Avatar m tn In case anyone else has this problem, I want my experience to be available to them. There was very little to read on the DURATION of initial phenobarbital side effects on the web, and I was very frightened by what I saw. So, here's what happened with my dog. The side effects (which were severe) lasted approximately three weeks. It is possible that they can last this long. Most people say they go away in a day or two, but in very sensitive dogs, it takes much longer.
Avatar f tn As they get older they do lose weight, sometimes it is due to hyperthyroidism, so have her thyroid checked also. I think she will be fine once the pren kicks in. It has a lot of side effects, put it does great work when it is called for.
Avatar f tn If you can cover them up and can stand the pain, I say hold off on the prednisone. Take combination of antihistamines...claritin in the morning, benedryl at night, etc. If they itch but you don't mind the way they look, put the cortisone cream stuff. If they itch/hurt and you don't like the way they look, take the prednisone and go see a doctor. I see an allergist that my physician referred me to.
Avatar m tn Yes, prednisone has a lot of side effects. You can look them all up online. For me the headaches, flushed face and damage it did to my mouth was the worst. I had to take it for 13 weeks and I had taken it with seven other IVFs. Steroids in general aren't good for your body but are sometimes necessary.
Avatar n tn I know there have been some recent reports that a batch of the GSK H1N1 vaccine has resulted in unusual side effects in some people, resulting in that particular batch of vaccine being recalled. I really do hope that your doctor cab find a solution to your discomfort and things work out well for you and others suffering pain.
Avatar n tn Karajo ~ I've had a peripheral vision check every year since I began taking plaquenil ten years ago with no side effects in the eyes. But one of the side effects of plaquenil can be dry patchy skin, and my lupus lesions on my face are really dry and patchy... wonder if I shouldn't change med's? anyone else?
Avatar n tn If your tests show you and your partner's DNA to be too similar, you can receive injections of your partner's white blood cells, in hopes of getting enough of his HLA in your system to stimulate a stronger protective response. This is an expensive and controversial tactic, but allegedly (a word I use since there isn't solid 3rd party data to support it) succeeds 80% of the time.
Avatar n tn About six years ago, I noticed nasty little puckers and crepiness in the crook of my elbow. About six months ago, the skin under my underarm (on the inner side of my arm) started to look saggy. I have an antiaging blog and have used this to document everything logical to be done about this since many of my readers are experiencing the same.
Avatar f tn You might want to try some Mg to see if it helps, but be sure to tell your doc when you see him/her that you are taking it (as well as anything else) and in what dose. You know how babies are all floppy after a bottle of milk? Partly it is from the Mg in the milk -- who knew!? It's that soothing and relaxing and calming. I had one doc (not my Lyme doc) sneer at me and say taking Mg was unnecessary and would give me diarrhea ...
426533 tn?1203642480 Know what the side effects are and on the same token think about whether or not the chance of side effects is worth you having a quality of life. If you read all the side effects and let them scare you off - you will never take anything, including an asprine. Even before a diagnoses of any kind, it helps to join a support group, in your case one for chronic pain. Never, ever give up, always forge ahead. Learn and respect your limitations.
Avatar f tn Drugs like Alprilazole or anything fast-acting just slow down your neurons and act as sedatives. SSRI's help reuptake cerotonin in the brain with almost very few side effects. Please look it up. It has saved lots of depressed lives. Thank you.
Avatar f tn She may develop mouth ulcers, and also ulcers of the G.I. may see blood in her stools. She will become more lethargic, and want to sleep for many hours. She will start to urinate less. She may have seizures, or she may go into a coma, and die peacefully. We would all want them to die peacefully in their sleep, but this is not always the case. I have read many peoples posts on kidney failure in their dogs. Most people say that when their dog stops eating, The time is near.
1002983 tn?1349825686 There is a lot being written up about melatonin in conjunction with Vitamin E. Also a lot of research and positive findings regarding Myo-inositol. The other supplements all seem to have properties thought to improve egg/embryo quality. DHEA is quite a big one being used by many women, and some fertility clinics prescribe it to older women. The pycnogenol and Trans-Resveratrol are supplements that I notice quite a few doctors actually recommend.
2186126 tn?1384961026 I now think by shrinking the tumor with this medicine, then managing the subsequent side effects of treatment is the superior approach for dogs under 14. Make sure to google/ research the heck out of Cushing as it is very complex, and you'll want to make sure your vet can refer you to a specialist as symptoms become more serious. Get second and third opinions, etc. Drs don't truly understand this illness very well at all, and tend to have varying opinions on treatments, etc.

Avatar f tn She knew you were sacrificing for her and you can have peace of mind in knowing that. Let the thought of you by her side in her last moments give you peace. I lost my border collie mix, to end stage kidney failure, his name was spots, 2 summers ago, and I still cry to this day. I have since acquired 2 more dogs, but nothing will ever take his place, nor erase the memories of what I went through trying to save his life.
Avatar n tn I've had eczema in my ears for 15 yrs. It is very cyclical, starting w/intense uncontrollable itching, then clear fluid leaking from skin, followed by crusting over & flaking of skin in ears that is itchy in & of itself, leading to more scratching & picking at ears. The skin in my ears gets very damaged and ratty during outbreaks. I also have swelling of the ear canal after these itch/scratch episodes that are sometimes quite painful, & Motrin helps that.

1702100 tn?1307230924 I just decided that I didn't want to deal with the side-effects of the medications (some of which are very scary!), or deal with the emotional and physical stress of surgery, so I am just waiting it out. YES, it is normal to have a LOT of pus and gross stuff drain out of an abscess. I have had as much as half a cup (no exaggeration) drain from one abscess before. I's frightening, upsetting, and not fun at all.
1657910 tn?1302375661 I am non-compliant. I am on 30mg of Prednisone. I am on week 4. I saw little in the way of results till the end of week 2. The first time I was on Prednisone I was on 20mg for 14 days. Things quieted, but didn't go away. It did, however, take the anger out of the symptoms. This time we are leaving me on till I can see the Rheumatologist. My breasts are improving in shape and color, and the big lump in the middle seems to be softening....

Avatar n tn he has had a fever on and off. A week has not gone by without developing a fever in between the range of 100-105. Many times, he has no other sympton AT ALL. Now, it has been 7 weeks with recurring HIGH ( 101-104) FEVER. Every time we take him to the doctor, they say it is justa virus and to let it pass. I cannot take this "virus thing" as the answer anymore. Is it just me? Am I crazy or is this abnormal? What does this sound like to you? I need a doctor to help him!
Avatar n tn don't harp on that in your mind. Most of us hope for dignity the end of our winter, in my opinion our companions do too. Don't allow that memory to over take you repeatedly, your companion deserves his or her dignity. Remember that. Of you do both of your spirits will learn to flourish.
Avatar m tn I experienced this sort of thing for many years after taking Accutane in 1985. The worst side effects of this drug appear after one is done with the course of therapy. Because of this the correlation between the dysfunctions of the body and the drug is lost.
1386655 tn?1452100656 I have a hard time believing this because if this cough actually went away finally, I would have to erect a statue of this dr in Central Park! So she says to me this is all safe to use during the first trimester and to go ahead and check with my dr if I feel better. If he doesn't agree, we can adjust this. So yesterday I called the RE - got the nurse gave her all the info and she said I'll check with the dr and call you back. So she does and says that the zrtec is fine.
Avatar n tn Immuran boosts the effectiveness of prednisone and allows you to take less of it. This helps to minimize the bad side effects of prednisone and makes it less likely you'll experience long term problems from it. With immuran's help your prednisone dose can be extremely low, and meanwhile your AIH is fully managed. You could live happily ever after using this regimen and keep your liver safe from your overactive immune system.
Avatar n tn I am starting to really freak out that there is something serious going on and no doctors want to take the time to figure it out. I am starting to wonder if perhaps this is a side effect of some kind of mold I cant see. I need a "Dr.House" anyone out there that help us poor women.
Avatar m tn This appeared out of the blue in June 2012 (I say out of the blue because I don't take drugs, don't smoke, don't have diabetes, didn't have chemotherapy, and didn't take medicines for long periods of time -besides 1 week of cyprofloxacin in March 2012). I had a sexual exposure in February 2012 with bizarre symptoms exactly 2 weeks later that lead me to think on HIV (a cervical swollen lymph node, neck stiffness and then an urinary track infection), but I tested negative several times.
