How to take Prednisone?
With any medication that you take it is important that you take it as directed in order to get the best from the medication. The same goes for Prednisone, which needs to be taken exactly as directed without being taken in smaller or larger amounts.
If you are taking this medication, which is used to treat a range of health problems and is an effective method of preventing inflammation, you should make sure that you seek medical advice if you suffer from any existing health problems other than those you are taking the medication for. Also, if you are on any other medication or herbal supplements you should seek advice before taking the medication.
Some people find that taking Prednisone on an empty stomach can upset their stomach and leave them feeling nauseous. If this is the case then it is advisable to take the medication with some food so that you can avoid upsetting your stomach. Also, do bear in mind that whilst you may start this medication on a particular dosage this may have to change depending on your health problem and whether the initial dosage is adequate for the treatment of the health problem.
It is important to make sure that you do not suddenly stop taking Prednisone without being advised to do so by a healthcare professional, as otherwise you could be left suffering from withdrawal symptoms. If and when you come off the medication you will need further advice on how to best combat the withdrawal symptoms.
