PREDNISOLONE DISINTEGRATING TABLET - ORAL
COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Orapred ODT
USES: Prednisolone is used to treat conditions such as arthritis, blood disorders, severe allergic reactions, certain cancers, eye conditions, skin/kidney/intestinal/lung diseases, and immune system disorders. It decreases your immune system's response to various diseases to reduce symptoms such as swelling, pain and allergic-type reactions. This medication is a corticosteroid hormone.
Prednisolone may also be used with other medications in hormone disorders.
HOW TO USE: Take this medication with food to prevent stomach upset, as directed by your doctor. This medication is dissolved in the mouth on top of the tongue.
Do not remove the tablet from the blister pack until you are ready to take it. With dry hands, peel back the foil on the blister pack to carefully remove the tablet. Do not push the tablet through the foil because the tablets break easily. Place each dose on the tongue, allowing it to dissolve completely. Swallow your dose with your saliva or with water. Do not crush, split, or break the tablet before taking it.
Follow your dosing instructions carefully. The dosage and length of treatment are based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Different dosing schedules exist for prednisolone. If you are not taking the same dose each day or if you take this medication every other day, it may help to mark your calendar with a reminder. Consult your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions.
Do not stop taking this medication without consulting your doctor. Some conditions may worsen or you may experience withdrawal symptoms (such as weakness, weight loss, nausea, muscle pain, headache, tiredness, dizziness) when this drug is suddenly stopped. To prevent these withdrawal symptoms when stopping this medication, your doctor may reduce your dose gradually. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details, and report any withdrawal reactions immediately. See also Precautions section.
Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.
