Deltasone review





Deltasone is a brand name for the drug predisone, in the steroid classification of drugs. It is used to reduce swelling, but also lowers the immune system. It comes in tablets and is prescribed for several different problems. These can include endocrine disorders when the body does not produce enough of its own prednisone, rheumatic disorders such as arthritis, collagen diseases, dermatologic diseases such as severe psoriasis, allergies, ophthalmic disorders, respiratory disorders, hematologic disorders, neoplastic diseases, edematous states, gastrointestinal diseases such as ulcerative colitis, asthma, lupus, and nervous system disorders, especially those associated with flare-ups of multiple sclerosis.

Some of the side effects of Deltasone include fluid retention, congestive heart failure, loss of potassium, insomnia, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, fatigue, joint pain, increased hunger or thirst, high blood pressure, muscle weakness, loss of muscle mass, rupturing tendons, peptic ulcer, pancreatitis, abdominal distention, fragility of skin, increase sweating, convulsions, vertigo, menstrual irregularities, glaucoma, or headache. Other side effects may include salt and water retention, and lowered immune system effectiveness for some people. Some people may also experience an allergic reaction to Deltasone; this is rare, but contact your doctor or go to the emergency room if you experience difficulty breathing, swelling of the throat, face, lips, or tongue, or hives, sudden weight gain, severe headache, or blurred vision. Other conditions are rare but can be more frequent with higher doses of Deltasone, such as acne, increased hair growth, cataracts, roundness of the face, or behavior or mood changes.

As with all steroids, it is very important not to stop taking prednisone suddenly. Your doctor will prescribe your Deltasone in such a way that you reduce your dosage gradually before finally ending treatment. Deltasone should be taken with food or milk so that it does not upset your stomach. You should not take other medications while taking Deltasone unless you have first discussed them with your doctor. This includes herbal and natural treatments, as well as other prescriptions.

There are some people who should not take Deltasone, or who should take special precautions if they do. You should not take it if you have a serious bacterial, viral, or fungal infection, since Deltasone can weaken your body’s ability to fight these infections. You should also discuss it with your doctor if you have kidney disease, liver disease, high blood pressure or heart disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis, stomach ulcers, hypothyroidism, a psychiatric condition, osteoporosis, myasthenia gravis (or muscle weakness), diabetes mellitus, or any other medical conditions. These conditions may require an adjusted dosage of Deltasone.

No studies have been done to determine whether Deltasone is safe for use by pregnant women, so extreme caution should be used in prescribing this or any steroid for someone who is pregnant. The benefits of Deltasone treatment should be weighed against any possible harm to the developing fetus. This is also true if you are nursing a baby, since it is known that Deltasone passes into breast milk. Of you are pregnant or nursing and do take Deltasone, your child should be monitored carefully for signs of hypoadrenalism.
