The Patient Information Leaflet (PIL) is the leaflet included in the pack with a medicine. Talk to a doctor if you (or someone taking this medicine), show any signs of mental problems. It is written for patients and gives information about taking or using a medicine. WHAT PREDNISOLONE IS AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR The name of your medicine is Prednisolone 25mg Tablets (called Prednisolone throughout this leaflet). This is particularly important if you are depressed, or might be thinking about suicide. It is possible that the leaflet in your medicine pack may differ from this version because it may have been updated since your medicine was packaged. In a few cases, mental problems have happened when doses are being lowered or stopped. Below is a text only representation of the Patient Information Leaflet. Taking other medicines Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines. The original can be viewed in PDF format using the link above. This includes medicines obtained without a prescription, including herbal medicines. The text only version may be available from RNIB in large print, Braille or audio CD. This is because prednisolone and other medicines can affect the way each other work. For further information call RNIB Medicine Leaflet Line on 08. In particular, check with your doctor if you are taking any of the following medicines. Prednisone is a medication that is often used to treat inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis), as well as a host of other diseases and conditions. It can be very effective in getting acute IBD symptoms under control, but the list of potential side effects that this drug can cause is extensive. The good news is that most prednisone side effects will go away as the dose is lowered and then the drug is stopped altogether. One of the goals of treating IBD is to use prednisone sparingly and to get patients off it as soon as possible. Knowing about the potential for side effects goes a long way towards minimizing them and coping with them when they do happen. If your doctor has prescribed prednisone, it's because the benefits of the drug outweigh the risks of the side effects. Below is a discussion of the potential prednisone side effects, when they occur, which are temporary, and which could be permanent.
This list includes common and less common side effects for individuals taking Prednisolone. Prednisolone side effects that are very rare, occurring in less than 10% of patients, are not listed here. However, you should always inform your health care provider if you experience any unusual symptoms. Contact your health care provider immediately, day or night, if you should experience any of the following symptoms: You will be checked regularly by your health care professional while you are taking Prednisolone, to monitor side effects and check your response to therapy. Periodic blood work to monitor your complete blood count (CBC) as well as the function of other organs (such as your kidneys and liver) will also be ordered by your doctor. Corticosteroids are naturally produced by the adrenal gland in the body. Corticosteroids influence the functioning of most of the body's systems (heart, immune, muscles and bones, endocrine and nervous system).
