It is commonly used to treat conditions such as allergies, asthma, autoimmune diseases, and certain types of cancer.

Prednisone is a corticosteroid, a class of drugs prescribed to combat inflammation, especially inflammation associated with chronic autoimmune disorders. Autoimmune disorders, like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, are caused when your immune system begins to attack healthy tissue inside your body as if it’s an invader like a bacteria or virus. Corticosteroids work by mimicking the actions of a hormone inside your body called cortisol. Cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands, usually as a reaction to stress.

This hormone regulates things like metabolism and immune response. By mimicking cortisol, prednisone and other corticosteroids dampen the activity of the immune system. By lessening immune response, damage to the tissues being attacked is reduced.

Before Using

In deciding to use a medicine, the risks of taking the medicine must be weighed against the good it will do. This is a decision you and your doctor will make. For this medicine, the following should be considered:

Allergies

Tell your doctor if you have ever had any unusual or allergic reaction to this medicine or any other medicines. Also tell your health care professional if you have any other types of allergies, such as to foods, dyes, preservatives, or animals. For non-prescription products, read the label or package ingredients carefully.

Pediatric

Appropriate studies performed to date have not demonstrated pediatric-specific problems that would limit the usefulness of prednisone in children. However, pediatric patients are more likely to have slower growth and bone problems if prednisone is used for a long time. Recommended doses should not be exceeded, and the patient should be carefully monitored during therapy.

Geriatric

Appropriate studies performed to date have not demonstrated geriatric-specific problems that would limit the usefulness of prednisone in the elderly. However, elderly patients are more likely to have age-related liver, kidney, or heart problems, which may require caution and an adjustment in the dose for elderly patients receiving prednisone.

There are no adequate studies in women for determining infant risk when using this medication during breastfeeding. Weigh the potential benefits against the potential risks before taking this medication while breastfeeding.
