Can Prednisone Be Taken For Parkinson's Disease?
XXXXXXX XXXX. YYYY@YYYY
No it does not help.
Hello and thank you for choosing HealthcareMagic for your health related questions.
Regarding the use of prednisone (or other steroids) in treating Parkinsonism, no there is no use for the use of prednisone in parkinsonism, it doesn't have any benefit and could cause side effects.
I remain at your disposal for other questions.
It is not approved for that purpose, studies have not shown benefit and personally I do not use it. There are colleagues of mine though who still use it, but as I said it hasn't been shown to provide any benefit apart from having potential side effects..
Let me know if I can further assist you.
