Anyone here ever taken prednisone?
« on: April 10, 2014, 04:37:10 PM »
I saw my ent today and she thinks I may have a sinus or inner ear problem. Either way she gave me some steroids to take in different doses each day. It's prednisone but generic. And I always get scared of side effects.

Just wondering if anyone here has taken them?

I took it for the same issues, there were no side effects and it worked awesome for the 7 days I was on it.

My husband took it for the gout - no side effects and it worked like a charm.

Pred in the very short term is OK. I would only take it if you absolutely had to. Don't even think about looking up side effects!!

I took it back in 2010 for Bell's Palsy.  I can't say it did anything helpful for me.

Short term a week is likely ok.  Long term not really.

Thanks for the replies. Mine is 6 day course. I get afraid of taking new meds. I hope I can take Xanax along with it.
