What are the side effects of Solupred?

My client has been taking Solupred for 7 years now for a skin condition which has shown no improvement but the solupred has caused the loss of her teeth and numerous other side-effects which she is now medicated for!!! The doctors can find no reason for her condition which is a release of smell amounts of blood beneath her skin which looks like a rash and disappears after a few day like a bruise. It causes no pain or discomfort, just a lot of worry. We live in Egypt and doctors here hand out pills for everything!!! Could you give me some advice on the use of Solupred over a long term period?

Hi,

Solupred contains prednisolone which is used to treat many different inflammatory conditions like arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, ulcerative colitis,
allergic disorders, endocrine gland disorders and conditions that affect the skin, eyes, lungs, stomach, nervous system or blood cells. Side effects of Solupred are nausea, vomiting, weight gain, sleeping problems, restlessness, excessive sweating, thinning and easily bruising of the skin, impaired wound healing, GIT upset, ulcers in stomach and duodenum, headache, hunger, dizziness, menstrual period changes, heartburn, puffiness of face, hiccups, facial hair growth, acnes, allergic reactions etc.
Some measures or steps should be taken to cope with side effects of Solupred for using a long term period like taking regular healthy balanced diet and exercising daily to prevent weight gain, take this medication with food or antiulcerant to reduce the chances of stomach problems, take it in the morning so the levels are the lowest at bedtime to prevent sleep problems and restlessness, try wearing loose clothing and keep cool with a fan to prevent excessive sweating etc.

Take care. Hope I Have answered your questions. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
