Indications and usage     

Prednisone is a cortisone derivative (natural hormone from the adrenal glands), belonging to the group of glucocorticoids also termed steroids or corticosteroids. Drugs from this group have a similar action, but much more potent than cortisone. Its effects include mainly anti-inflammatory, antiallergic, and immunosuppressive therapeutical properties. . The multiple and potent actions in which are applied derive from these properties.

Usually, steroid therapy is administered as an adjuvant in various diseases, although it may often be the only possible.

The diseases which can be treated by administration of corticosteroids include:

- Endocrine disorders: failure of the adrenal glands, where natural corticosteroids are not produced in adequate amounts, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, suppurative thyroiditis and hypercalcemia linked to cancer.
- Musculoskeletal disorders involving inflammation: Rheumatoid arthritis (in the acute outbreak); posttraumatic osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis; ankylosing spondylitis; acute gouty arthritis, acute and subacute bursitis, fibrositis, epicondylitis, synovitis, tenosynovitis, and myositis.
- Collagenosis, a group of connective tissue disorders with a chronic inflammation in various organs, including systemic lupus erythematosus, cardiac rheumatic fever, dermatomyositis, and polymyositis.
- Diseases of the skin and mucous membranes, such as pemphigus, bullous herpetiform dermatitis, severe multiform erythema, including Stevens-Johnson syndrome, exfoliative dermatitis, mycosis fungoides, psoriasis and severe seborrheic dermatitis.
- Severe allergic diseases resistant to treatment with other drugs, including allergic rhinitis, nasal polyposis, asthma, contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis (neurodermatitis), drug reactions and serum sickness.
- Ophthalmic Diseases: Severe allergic or inflammatory disorders, such as allergic conjunctivitis, keratitis, allergic corneal marginal ulcers, ophthalmic herpes zoster, iritis and iridocyclitis, Chorioretinitis, inflammation of the anterior segment of the eye, posterior uveitis, choroiditis, optic neuritis and sympathetic ophthalmia.
- Respiratory diseases: Sarcoidosis, pulmonary fibrosis, Loeffler's syndrome without therapeutic alternatives, berylliosis, certain forms of pulmonary tuberculosis, together with the corresponding TB treatment.
- Diseases of the blood and lymph tissue, such as thrombocytopenic purple diverse, hemolytic anemias and other forms of anemia, agranulocytosis, leukemia and lymphomas.
- Neoplastic diseases,
- Renal diseases, such as nephrotic syndrome (idiopathic, in the course of erythematosus lupus).
- Digestive diseases, such as hepatitis and intestinal inflammatory disease (ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease).
- tuberculous meningitis with the subarachnoid block.
- peripheral facial paralysis (Bell's palsy).
- Multiple sclerosis.
- Trichinosis with neurological or cardiac involvement.

Before taking the drug     

Do not use prednisone

If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to prednisone, to other corticosteroids or any of the other ingredients of the medicinal product prescribed to you. If you think may be allergic, ask your doctor.

Allergy symptoms may include:

- Asthma attacks with shortness of breath, audible wheezing or rapid breathing.
- More or less sudden swelling of the face, lips, tongue or elsewhere in the body. It is especially critical if it affects the vocal cords.
- Hives, itching, rash
- Anaphylactic shock (loss of consciousness, paleness, sweating, etc.).

Nor you should take this medicine:

- If you have a fungal generalized infection (systemic mycosis),
- If you have osteoporosis or osteomalacia,
- If you have diabetes mellitus,
- If you have a symptomatic psychosis,
- If you suffer from peptic ulcer
- If you have active tuberculosis, unless you are under effective TB treatment,
- If you have an acute bacterial infection,
- If you have chickenpox or herpes zoster,
- If you need to get vaccinated, do not take prednisone for the previous 8 weeks or 2 weeks after vaccination,
- If you have severe high blood pressure,
- If you have glaucoma

Take special care with prednisone, especially :

Adrenal insufficiency:

Patients undergoing prolonged treatment with high doses of corticosteroids suffer a decreased function of the adrenal glands, which can cause poor response to situations of physical or psychological stress (trauma, burns, surgery, infections, etc.).

In these situations, the needs of natural corticosteroids are increased, as happens in the case of exacerbation of the disease which motivates administration of prednisone, so it may be necessary to administer additional prednisone doses.

The risk of poor response of the adrenal gland persists for months after stopping treatment with prednisone, forcing to closely monitor patients in situations of physical stress, as they may require replacement or supplementary doses.

When the doctor deems that the drug should be discontinued, shall gradually reduce the dose, in order to avoid the appearance of a functional failure of the adrenal glands due to lack of corticosteroids, whether natural or as prednisone.

Decreased defensive reaction of the organism:

Corticosteroids may mask the signs of infection and facilitate the development of concurrent infections, also decreasing the body's ability to maintain isolated the source of infection, allowing it becoming general.

Corticoids suppress the defensive response of the body; by this reason, patients treated with prednisone or other corticosteroids should not be vaccinated with live virus vaccines. This is the case of chickenpox and other vaccine-preventable diseases, since may occur a generalized virus infection by the vaccine virus.

Exceptions to this rule are cases of patients in which is administered a corticosteroid as replacement therapy if there is a natural hormone deficiency (Addison's disease).

Vaccination with inactivated vaccines may not be as effective as expected if the patient follows a treatment with prednisone or other corticosteroids.

For similar reasons, patients undergoing treatment with corticosteroids should avoid exposure to natural viral infections such as chickenpox, measles or shingles (herpes zoster).

If are administered corticosteroids to patients with latent tuberculosis or positive tuberculin reaction (Mantoux test), the disease can be reactivated, which requires a close medical supervision.

Risk of eye complications

Prolonged use of prednisone (or other corticosteroids) can cause or aggravate glaucoma, cataracts and other diseases or pre-existing injuries, so is necessary a close monitoring.

Corticosteroids may increase the incidence of eye infections by fungi and viruses. In the case of patients with ocular herpes simplex, can occur corneal perforation when corticosteroids are used.

Cardiovascular and metabolic risks

Corticosteroids can raise blood pressure, cause salt and water retention and increase calcium and potassium excretion, so your doctor may prescribe potassium supplements and recommend reducing the consumption of sodium (salt).

In the case of severe heart failure is required a careful medical supervision.

Children and adolescents

Prednisone can alter growth in children, so the development of pediatric patients should be controlled on extended treatments.

Prolonged treatment in children can cause damage to the pancreas.

Other cautions

When possible, the doctor will use the lowest effective dose.

The effect of corticosteroids increases in patients with hypothyroidism or cirrhosis; such patients may require lower prednisone doses.

Prednisone and other corticosteroids can lead to psychiatric disorders or aggravate emotional instability situations or psychosis pre-existing. May appear sleep disorders requiring a change in treatment.

Corticosteroids may alter the motility and number of spermatozoa in some patients.

If you have diabetes, your doctor may increase your diabetes medicine and monitor the treatment more closely.

If you have risk factors for osteoporosis (hereditary, elderly patients, post-menopause, heavy smokers and lack of physical activity) treatment with prednisone may cause bone mass loss, so your doctor may prescribe a treatment to prevent osteoporosis.

Corticosteroids should be used with great caution in:

- gastroduodenal ulcers,
- severe ulcerative colitis with a high risk of perforation, abscess or other pyogenic infection
- Diverticulitis,
- recent surgical intestinal anastomosis (joining two sections of the intestine),
- renal failure,
- Arterial hypertension. Hypertensive patients should be monitored more frequently.
- Myasthenia gravis,
- Hepatitis B,
- Tuberculosis,
- Poliomyelitis, a viral infection that causes the so-called infantile paralysis,
- Acute viral infections, such as chickenpox, herpes simplex, herpes zoster or measles,
- Acute and chronic bacterial infections, such as acute tonsillitis
- Fungal infections such as candidiasis,
- Parasitic infestations, such as intestinal worms

Laboratory and allergy tests

Treatment with prednisone may alter the results of skin allergy tests and determination of thyroid hormone in the blood.

In both cases, tell your doctor you are being treated with prednisone.

Taking other medicines

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including herbal products or drugs obtained without a prescription.

It is especially important you tell your doctor if you take any of these drugs:

- Drugs that stimulate the elimination of prednisone (enzymatic inducers), and reduce the levels and effects of this substance. These include carbamazepine, primidone, phenobarbital, phenytoin, and rifampicin.
- Enzymatic inhibitors such as ketoconazole and erythromycin, which slow the elimination of steroid and increase its effects,
- Estrogens (female hormone), including contraceptives, which may increase the effects of prednisone,
- Concurrent administration of prednisone with digitalis, diuretics or amphotericin B can lower potassium levels,
- Coumarin anticoagulants (e.g. warfarin, acenocoumarol) may require a dose increase since prednisone can reduce its effects. It is advisable to closely monitor the INR and adjust the dose if necessary,
- Alcohol and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) increase the risk and severity of suffering from ulcers and gastrointestinal bleeding.
- There may be a decrease in the concentration of salicylates, including aspirin, by effects of corticoid.
- The Antidiabetic drugs may require a dose increase due to rising glucose level caused by prednisone.
- Antacids (aluminum, magnesium) may decrease the absorption and effects of prednisone.
- Administering corticosteroids while being taking growth hormone may reduce the effect of this,
- They can increase the effects of muscle relaxants (succinylcholine) if taken in combination with prednisone.
- Cyclosporine and prednisone inhibit each other, so it should not be given together.
- Co-administration with praziquantel reduces the effect of antiparasitic.
- Co-administration of prednisone and cyclophosphamide can alter its effects. It is not recommended simultaneous use
- Bupropion, an antidepressant also indicated for smoking cessation, can reduce the prednisone effects.
- Licorice may increase the effects of prednisone.
- ACE inhibitors (enalapril, lisinopril, captopril, etc), medicines for high blood pressure and heart failure, may increase the risk of alteration of blood cells,
- The joint use with anticholinergics increases the risk of glaucoma (ocular hypertension)
- antimalarial drugs (chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine, mefloquine) increase the risk of muscle weakness, including heart muscle.

Use with food and beverages

The extended-release tablets should be taken with food or after it, as they have a better absorption, preferably in the evening.

The immediate-release tablets should be taken in a single-dose, regardless of the amount taken, preferably after breakfast, either daily or on alternate days, accompanied by a sufficient amount of water, without chewing or crushing. However, when starting treatment, it is advisable to divide the total daily dose into two or more doses.

Special physiological situations

Pregnancy and lactation

Always consult your doctor or pharmacist before taking any medicine during pregnancy or lactation.

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, think you may be pregnant or planning to become pregnant. Your doctor will advise you about whether you can or should take this medicine.

It is not recommended to take prednisone during pregnancy unless your doctor prescribes it. The doctor will assess the risk of administration versus the potential benefits of treatment with prednisone,

If symptoms of acute conditions, such as infectious diseases, digestive or mental disorders occur during treatment with prednisone, consult your doctor.

Prednisone passed to the baby through breast milk, so it is not recommended breastfeed your child while on treatment with this medicine.

Your doctor will tell you whether you should discontinue nursing or discontinue the treatment, although, in some cases, the doctor may deem the benefits of the drug during breastfeeding outweigh the potential risks.

Elderly patients:

Elderly patients have an increased risk of adverse effects. The doctor will adapt the dosage to the patient organic conditions and possible concurrent diseases.

Children and adolescents:

Besides following general precautions in the use of prednisone, should be closely monitored the development of the patient since prednisone may alter the growth during long-term treatment.

Driving and using machines

It is unlikely that prednisone can affect the ability to drive or operate potentially dangerous machinery. However, if, as a result of treatment, you have eye pain, blurred vision or loss of visual acuity, should avoid carrying out these activities.

How to use prednisone     

Follow carefully instructions of use of prednisone provided by your doctor. Consult your doctor or pharmacist when in doubt. Follow the instructions of the physician in preference to those given in this website, which may be different. Ask your doctor to explain any aspect that you do not understand, contained in the instruction leaflet that comes with the medicine.

The doses used by the physician are highly variable from one patient to another, depending on the disease in which it is applied, the patient's clinical condition, and available alternatives.

Once the desired improvement is achieved, the doctor will determine the maintenance dose, reducing gradually the dose up to maintenance value

Your doctor may recommend passing from a daily dose to another on alternate days to perform maintenance treatment.

Usually, the initial or loading dose is used until the expected improvement occurs.

As noted above, the incidence of stress situations may require additional doses of corticosteroid, administered to prevent adrenal insufficiency caused by the poor response of these glands added to increased needs from natural corticosteroids.

Immediate release tablets

In adults, the initial dose is usually between 5 and 100 mg per day, using the lower doses in mild or moderate diseases or during maintenance or resolution of the clinical condition.

When has been obtained a favorable reaction of the disorder, the doctor may reduce the dose slowly, keeping the patient at the lowest effective dose to allow control of the disease, which can be as low as 5 or 10 mg daily.

The tablets should be taken whole with sufficient liquid. The total daily dose may divide into two, three or four times daily. The drug is taken preferably early in the morning, during or after a meal. In many patients, the dose is unique and can be taken during or after breakfast.

According to evolution, the doctor may recommend you start taking the drug every other day, in the morning, with or after the first meal of the day.

In children, the initial dose used vary between 0.10 and 3 mg/kg/day. As in the case of adults, the maintenance dose can be considerably lower (0.10 to 0.25 mg/kg/day).

Drug withdrawal after prolonged treatment should be done slowly.

Extended-release tablets

Do not divide, crush or chew extended-release tablets. This medication should be swallowed whole, with a glass of water, preferably in the evening, with or after a meal.

The manufacturer recommends taking the drug accompanied with a light meal if it's been over three hours since the last main meal, because, in this way, improves drug absorption.

Duration of treatment

Do not stop treatment on own initiative; the doctor will indicate the duration of treatment with prednisone. Do not stop treatment early or abruptly: it could not only worsen the disease, but also cause adrenal insufficiency.

If you think the effect of the medicine is too strong or too weak, consult your doctor.

If you have any further questions on the use of this product, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

While you take prednisone     

If a doctor prescribes another medicine, tell you are taking prednisone.

Check with your doctor regularly developments of disorder that motivates the use of prednisone. Maybe there is some reason that prevented you properly receive the indicated doses and induce your doctor to erroneous conclusions about treatment.

Do not restart treatment with prednisone at your own risk without first talking to your doctor, nor encourage its use by another person, even if have the same symptoms you have. Nor is it advisable to interrupt or reduce the dose without considering the opinion of your doctor.

If you feel unwell during treatment with prednisone, immediately consult your doctor.

If you take more than you should:

A prednisone excess probably not cause problems that endanger the patient's life, except in those where there are serious risks by the use of corticosteroids (diabetes, glaucoma or gastric ulcers, treatment with oral anticoagulants, digitalis and diuretics).

There have not been reported cases of acute poisoning massive ingestion of prednisone, although in the case of accidental overdose, may occur the known but more severe side effects.

The possible effects related to overdose include anxiety, depression, irritability, agitation, confusion, gastrointestinal bleeding, high blood pressure, salt and water retention with swelling of tissues and increase of blood glucose level. Some patients may present palpitations,

If you take more prednisone than you should, tell your doctor or go to the nearest hospital casualty department straight away. Take the medicine pack with you, even if it is empty.

If you forget to take prednisone

Wait until it is the time for the next dose and then continue normally treatment.

Do not take a double dose to make up for missed doses.

If you stop taking prednisone

You should not abruptly stop taking cortisone derivatives since you are exposed to a worsening of your disease and suffering a syndrome of adrenal insufficiency, which can be very serious.

On the contrary, you should be aware that to stop taking prednisone without risk to the health, you must strictly follow the instructions of your doctor.

Remember also that once stopped treatment, you should consult immediately to your doctor if you have a fever episode, will undergo surgery or suffer an accident or burn or you are under a significant psychological stress because, in all these case, you may need additional doses of prednisone

If you have any further questions on the use of this product, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
