Drug DescriptionGeneral


Deltasone (prednisone) is a type of adrenocortical steroid that effectively addresses various health conditions by suppressing the activity of cells in the immune system. They are commonly used in the treatment of a wide range of disorders, including endocrine and rheumatologic conditions, dermatologic issues, lung and collagen-vasculature diseases, allergic reactions, ophthalmic disorders, hematologic disorders, gastrointestinal problems, neoplastic diseases, and numerous other health conditions. 

Uses and Dosage 

Follow your doctor’s instructions and take this medication orally with food or milk to avoid stomach discomfort. If you are prescribed the tablet form, swallow it with a full glass of water (8 ounces/240 milliliters) unless otherwise instructed by your doctor. Use a specialized measuring device/spoon to measure the dose accurately for the liquid form. Avoid using a regular household spoon, as it may not provide the correct amount. If you are instructed to take only one dose daily, take it in the morning before 9 A.M. 

Adhere to your doctor’s directions and carefully follow the prescribed dosing schedule. The dosage and duration of treatment depend on your medical condition and how you respond to the medication. If you are following a plan that is not daily (such as every other day), mark your calendar as a reminder.

Long-term corticosteroid medications like prednisone may affect your body’s response to physical stress.

Inform your doctor or dentist about all your medications before surgery. Prednisone may mask signs of infection, increase infection risk, or worsen existing conditions.

Consult your doctor if you have been exposed to an infection or need further information.
