WHEN IS PREDNISONE ARROW PRESCRIBED?
This medication is a steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that belongs to the family of synthetic corticoids (chemical derivatives of natural cortisone). Cortisone has many properties, but it is mainly used for its powerful anti-inflammatory effect. It has fewer side effects than natural cortisone with the same effectiveness. These properties are useful in the treatment of numerous affections with an inflammatory or allergic component, but also of certain cancers where this drug allows to fight against cellular proliferation. It decreases immune reactions and is therefore used to prevent organ transplant rejection.
It is used in the treatment of certain serious diseases (cancer, multiple sclerosis, rheumatic fever, for example), but also of more benign diseases (allergy, asthma attack, acute sinusitis, ear infection). In the latter cases, the treatment is often short.

Treatment should be stopped gradually to allow the adrenal glands to resume natural cortisone synthesis. Stopping treatment abruptly also exposes the patient to a relapse of the disease being treated. This precaution is only useful when the duration of the treatment exceeds one week.
