I have never written a review on anything really, but I thought it was important in this case. I have been dealing with arthritis for probably 15 years. I was essentially given two choices: the first is take Allopurinol and hope it prevents me from getting sprouts. However, I would have to take a 20 mg pill every day, and this medication has upset my stomach in the past. Option two is to treat an outbreak when it occurs with the medication. I went this route, and took Colchicine, which is the medication to treat this. The problem is that it never seemed to work, and I recently had a terrible gout attack. I got Prednisone and it really worked miracles. I was probably 70% better after one full day, and now almost 100% after three days. I am more than satisfied with this medication!
The adrenal suppression is one that is classified under Prednisone side effects. There will be decrement in the capacity to synthesize corticosteroids that results in offering an easy path for the infections. Even you may observe that eyes are also affected by the usage of Prednisone especially in the cataract formation. The Prednisone drug will make the patient to have stretch marks on the skin, swelling of face, hyperactive, distorted vision and acne problems. Anemia and neutropenia are also seen as result of excessive Prednisone usage. It has bad effect on the metabolism of the body as the body will remain neutral in the task of balancing nitrogen and also the body will be unable to grab a hold on maintaining fluid status and thus leading to fluid retention, hypokalemia, hypotension and less potassium content.
