Suggest treatment for laryngitis while on prednisone

I take Prednisone for my MCD (currently 60 mg/day). One of the side effects is laryngitis. Annoying, but it usually goes away as I taper my dose. I am also taking Cellcept with the Prednisone. Any suggestions to symptomatically relieve the laryngitis. Thank you Paul Teitelbaum

Hello,

Start a short course of antibiotics preferably amoxiclav. Do warm saline gargles for symptomatic relief. Steroids have to continue and additional drugs like antihistamines may be taken along with steroids.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician
