I encountered Prednisolone at 17. At this age I got sick with polyarthritis. I had swollen joints in my arms and knees. I was prescribed these pills, told to take 1 pc 8 times a day. From side effects was a terrible appetite, and as a result weight gain, especially in the face. But then I immediately began to feel better, the pain and swelling disappeared. After I stopped taking Prednisolone, I returned to normal appearance after about a year. Polyarthritis does not bother me for 10 years. Natalia, St. Petersburg

My granddaughter had an allergy with terrible edema. She was admitted to hospital and prescribed Prednisolone, among other drugs. During use, her appetite increased, but her immunity decreased. It is impossible to stop taking it abruptly, you need to gradually reduce the dose. Gradually, the negative effects are gone. But most importantly, this drug helped her granddaughter cope with allergies. Lika, Rybinsk

My daughter had atypical jaundice, to which hepatitis was later added. Atypical jaundice is when direct and indirect bilirubin is almost 50/50. This not normal. Treatment for this disease is prescribed corticosteroids, and they include Prednisone. They drank pills on a schedule that the doctor wrote, gradually reducing the dose. A month later, biochemical analysis showed that bilirubin was normal. Olga, Bashkortostan
