Drug Description


Deltasone Dispersible is a form of the medication prednisone. Prednisone is a corticosteroid medication used to treat various conditions such as asthma, allergic reactions, arthritis, inflammatory bowel diseases, adrenal disorders, and blood or bone marrow disorders.  

Prednisone works by decreasing inflammation, slowing down an overactive immune system, or replacing cortisol, a hormone that is normally produced by the body. It is often used to help reduce inflammation caused by illness or injury. 

Use and Dosage 

Prednisone is specifically designed to dissolve quickly in water, allowing for easier administration, especially for individuals who have difficulty swallowing whole tablets. Prednisone is commonly taken with food or milk to help prevent stomach upset. This is especially important if you have a sensitive stomach. Place the tablet in a glass of water and allow it to dissolve. Stir the mixture until the tablet is completely dissolved. 

Take the prednisone tablets exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The dosage will depend on your specific condition and response to treatment. Do not take more or less than the prescribed amount. Regular checkups and monitoring may be necessary while taking Prednisone. Follow up with your doctor as scheduled and discuss any concerns, or side effects, you may be experiencing. 

If you miss a dose of prednisone, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is close to the time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are unsure about what to do, consult your healthcare provider.
