Mobile Questions and Answers

Dr. Robert Galamaga MD

this is not typical of prednisone

Dr. Ashok Vardhan MD

Yes they are normal please don't worry about it you have to stop prednisolone in a decreasing quantity of dosage say from 40mg to 20mg to 10mg to 5mg but not all off sudden

Dr. Vaishalee Punj MD

Prednisone is usually prescribed maximum 80mg/day in divided doses of 3 - 4 times a day. Though for sneezing and itchy eyes I will suspect an allergy and I would prescribe anti-histaminics first.
