Were you looking for information about Prednisone? Prednasone is a common misspelling of prednisone.
Prednisone, a medication available by prescription, is used primarily for decreasing inflammation and suppressing an overactive immune system. It is generally used as a short-term treatment and is taken just once a day or several times a day, depending on the condition being treated.
Some of the side effects that have been reported with prednisone include headaches, high blood pressure, and high blood sugar. Among the conditions that you should let your healthcare provider know about before you take prednisone are diabetes, osteoporosis, underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), and liver disease (such as liver failure or cirrhosis).
