Why do you take Prednisone for gout?
Prednisone is an anti informatory part of the problem with gout isinflammation.
Prednisone is also a steroid. Take with food or milk to avoid tummy trouble . If you are taking a high dose for a week or less, you may get very hungry or very cranky . Be aware it's the drug, and talk to yourself sharply. It's only for a short time, but can take you by surprise if not warned.
Yes. Indeed, when allopurino is prescribed for gout, it is often prescribed in combination with predisone. The reason is that while allpurinol ultimately assist the body in eliminating uric acid (the main cause of gout flares) from the body, initially allopurinol can elevate uric acid levels. As a result, prednisone is often precribed for the first 2 to 4 weeks of allpurinol treatment in order to mitigate the onset of gout flares caused by allopurino…
Can antihistamines be taken at the same time as prednisone? Yes you can take Benadryl and Prednisone together. If you're having an allergic reaction, you can add Pepcid AC with the Benadryl to help control itching. Pepcid AC affects the histamines that Benadryl does not. The Prednisone will basically help treat the allergic reaction from the inside but doesn't help itching.
Darvocet and Darvocet-N are both analgesics, mild to moderate pain relievers; Prednisone is a steroid, which decreases inflammation and promotes faster healing. You can take them together,...but, steroids are VERY irritating to the stomach lining, so best to take the Prednisone on top of a meal or at least with a glass of milk.
