Prednisone is a corticosteroid. Corticosteroids are anti-inflammatory medications that are used to treat a wide range of different conditions and health problems including arthritis, asthma, and severe allergies. By reducing inflammation, swelling, and redness prednisone treats many painful and debilitating symptoms of these conditions. You can buy prednisone online by getting a prescription from a licensed doctor.
Prednisone is a steroid drug that lowers the activity of the immune system. To do this it replaces natural steroids produced by the body to alter the way the immune system works for the duration that it’s being taken. This can alleviate certain immune-related symptoms including inflammation and swelling.

Prednisone is a corticosteroid that is used to treat conditions including:
– Breathing problems such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
– Skin diseases
– Some cancers (as part of chemotherapy)
– Certain eye problems
– Immune system deficiencies
– Blood disorders
Most of these conditions cause the immune system to react and produce swelling and inflammation, which can lead to pain, rashes, and other unpleasant symptoms. Corticosteroids work by reducing the immune system’s reaction to the disease process, thus limiting swelling and other allergic-type reactions such as itching and redness.
Prednisone is available in different forms, including tablets, intramuscular injections, and eye drops. It is most commonly taken by mouth. It is usually advised that prednisone pills should be taken with a full glass of water and with something to eat to help reduce the risk of an upset stomach.
Prednisone is also available as a liquid for people who might have trouble taking tablets.
The dose of prednisone is variable and depends on why you are taking it, how long you have been taking it for, and whether you have any other health problems. It is really important to take the correct prednisone dosage as recommended by your doctor – you should measure out this dose really carefully, particularly if taking the liquid formulation. If you are only taking one dose a day, it is usually advised to do this early in the morning, ideally before 9am.
Prednisone is often prescribed as a reducing-dose regime, and there will be a schedule provided for how to take it. It is very important to take it exactly as prescribed. Your doctor will prescribe the prednisone dosage and length of your treatment based on your condition and response to treatment so far. You should always take the full course of treatment – if you stop before the end of the prescribed duration, then your condition may get worse.
Minor side effects of Prednisone include:
– Weakness and tiredness
– Minor weight loss

If you notice any of these symptoms, it is important to let your doctor know. If the symptoms are severe, the doctor may advise you to reduce the dose of prednisone that you have been taking.
