Uses
Apo-Prednisone (Prednisone) is an orally administered synthetic corticosteroid medication that exhibits glucocorticoid properties. It has a wide range of medical uses due to its strong anti-inflammatory benefits.

Indications can include, but are not limited to allergic conditions (asthma, dermatitis and rhinitis), skin disorders (mycosis fungoides, bullous dermatitis herpetiformis), lupus erythematosus, adrenocortical insufficiency and other related disorders, ulcerative colitis and other gastrointestinal conditions, blood disorders, certain types of lymphomas or leukaemia, multiple sclerosis, eye conditions which have failed to respond to topical treatment, breathing conditions, various forms of arthritis (rheumatoid, psoriatic, ankylosing spondylitis) and other conditions.

This adrenocortical medication blocks the chemicals used by the immune system in reactions that produce inflammation, thereby helping to decrease swelling. Its method of action for other conditions may be due to its effects on protein catabolism, fat synthesis and its triggering of gluconeogenisis.

Apo-Prednisone (Prednisone) comes in the form of 20mg tablets for administration via the oral route. The amount of medicine required, as well as the strength of tablet used will depend largely on the reason why it is being used.

If used as an anti-inflammatory medicine, the dosage used generally ranges from 5mg to 60mg, taken 1 to 4 times per day. Patient specific instructions will be given by the doctor. Nephrotic syndrome, psoriasis, skin disorders or any other conditions might need a different dosage regimen. You must only administer the amount of medicine that your doctor tells you to take.
