Prednisone 20 mg Tablets

Prednisone is a medication often used for decreasing inflammation or suppressing an overactive immune system. It is available by prescription only and comes in six different strengths, including:
 
  • Prednisone 1 mg tablets
  • Prednisone 2.5 mg tablets
  • Prednisone 5 mg tablets
  • Prednisone 10 mg tablets
  • Prednisone 20 mg tablets
  • Prednisone 50 mg tablets.
  •  
The medication is taken just once a day or several times a day, depending on the condition being treated.
 
In general, most people take the drug for a short period of time in order to avoid long-term prednisone side effects. These side effects can usually be avoided by taking lower dosages (less than prednisone 20 mg per day) or by taking prednisone for less than two weeks.
