Frequently Asked Questions

What is prednisone and how does it work?

Prednisone is a corticosteroid that reduces inflammation in the body. It is used to treat a variety of conditions, by reducing the immune system’s response to the disease, which reduces inflammation.

What are the uses for prednisone?

Prednisone can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including arthritis, lupus, asthma and other breathing disorders, allergies, skin problems, and more.

How do you use prednisone?

Prednisone should be taken as per doctor’s recommendation. It comes in different forms, such as tablets, capsules, syrups, inhalers, topical ointments, injections, and nasal sprays.

What are the side effects and risks of prednisone?

Prednisone side effects may include:

  • Increased sweating
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Weight gain and swelling
  • Acne
  • Nausea or heartburn
  • Loss of appetite
  • Skin thinning
  • Bone loss (if used chronically)

If these side effects persist or worsen over time, or if you get blurred vision, an irregular heartbeat, black or bloody stools, mood changes, or significant swelling, consult with a doctor immediately. Depending on how prednisone is delivered, you may have to wean off of it, so it’s important to see your doctor before suddenly stopping.

Who should not take prednisone?

In rare cases, individuals can be allergic to prednisone or some of its ingredients. Additionally, certain conditions may contradict prednisone such as tuberculosis, so it is important to speak with a doctor before taking prednisone.

If you are seeing signs of inflammation, speak to a doctor here on Maple to see if prednisone is right for you.

Does prednisone expire?

Prednisone does expire, though its lifespan can vary depending on its form. Tablets can have a shelf life as long as 36 months, while the liquid form can be as short as 6 months. Expiry dates should be listed clearly on the packaging, either near the lot number or on the pharmacy label. If there is no expiry date listed, talk to your pharmacist about when it could expire. It’s recommended to avoid taking expired prednisone, because it may lose its potency or even possibly increase negative symptoms.
