What other drugs can affect prednisone?

There are well documented interactions if you take:

  • aspirin on a regular basis;
  • any diuretic (remember that alcohol acts as a diuretic);
  • insulin to treat diabetes;
  • a range of drugs used to treat fungal infections;
  • drugs used to thin the blood; or
  • drugs designed to reduce the risk of seizures.

What are the main side effects?

Every drug causes some side effects in some people. Sadly, not everyone is the same and what works well in one may provoke a serious allergic reaction in another. The point of clinical trials is to prove to the FDA that the drug is safe for the vast majority of all those who propose to use it. So, with prednisone, it’s safe and effective for the majority of users so long as you follow the directions given by your doctor or pharmacist. Remember that one of the effects of any steroid is to encourage some water retention. This can prompt you to sweat more and make changes in the distribution of body fat around your waist and on your arms and legs. You may also be more likely to bruise easily and cuts may take longer than usual to heal. Finally, remember that using a steroid can hide the fact that you have an infection. Worse, the steroid in the blood stream can affect the result of the tests usually administered to identify the nature of any infection.

The mild side effects include:

  • insomnia;
  • headaches;
  • stomach pain, a bloated feeling and nausea; or
  • changes in your mood.

The more serious effects justifying seeking emergency assistance include:

  • severe stomach pain;
  • coughing up blood or passing blood in your stools;
  • rapid weight gain or a swelling of the arms and legs;
  • confusion, muscle weakness, breathlessness and an uneven heartbeat;
  • changes in your ability to see - long-term use can cause cataracts and eye infections; or
  • sudden depression.
