How to use Prednisone (Prednisone)

Take prednisone exactly as prescribed, and with food to avoid stomach upset. If you are on alternate-day therapy or have been prescribed a single daily dose, take prednisone in the morning with breakfast, before 9 a.m. If you have been prescribed several doses per day, take them at evenly spaced intervals around the clock. For large doses, taking an antacid in between meals may prevent stomach ulcers. If you have been taking prednisone for a period of time, you may need an increased dosage of the medication before, during, and after any stressful situation. Always consult your doctor if you are anticipating stress and think you may need a temporary dosage increase.

Please see general statement regarding dosage. Adults: Dosage is determined by the condition being treated and your response to the drug. Typical starting doses can range from 5 milligrams (mg) to 60 mg a day. Once you respond to the drug, your doctor will lower the dose gradually to the minimum effective amount. Children: Dosage is determined by the condition being treated and their response to the drug.

Avoid alcohol. Alcohol and prednisone may damage the stomach. Avoid sources of infection; your immune system may be weakened while taking prednisone. Wash your hands frequently and keep them away from your mouth and eyes. Do not receive immunizations during treatment with prednisone without first talking to your doctor. Avoid abrupt withdrawal of prednisone. Speak to your doctor before stopping it. Signs of withdrawal include muscle pain, joint pain, and feeling ill.

Store at room temperature.
