Couldn't find what you looking for?


I had an exposure to cold 10 days ago and had sore throat with irritating cough and shortness of breath. Sore throat has gone after a course of Tab. Clavam XR (1 gm) twice daily for 5 days. But cough and shortness of breath are still there. Chest x-ray is unremarkable. My doctor has advised me Tab. Prednisolone(10 mg) - 3 tablets once daily for 4 days with Terbutaline Sulphate and Expectorants. Will there be any problem if I take these medicines? I have already been suffering from Hypothyroidism, Enlarged Prostate and Gastritis and am taking medicines for these.

One more question - Can Prednisolone be stopped abruptly after 4 days.
