Prednisone belongs to a group of medications called Corticosteroids. It suppresses the body’s natural response to an allergy and thereby reduces inflammation.




Usage

& Dosage



Please ask for precise dosage instructions to your healthcare provider.



Prednisone is an antibiotic medication that needs to be taken for a stipulated period of time for it to be effective. Do not discontinue dosage suddenly without speaking to your doctor. Also, do not take the medication for a prolonged time period.



Try to take the medication at the same time everyday to avoid missing a dose. If you have missed a dose and it is almost time for the next dose, then skip the missed one and continue with the regular dosage. Alternatively, if you remember immediately, then you may take the missed dose. Never double up to compensate for a missed dose.




Storage



Store Prednisone at room temperature in a cool and dark place. Keep away from children and pets.
