Effectiveness

How Orapred Affects PatientsPrednisolone works by blocking certain signals in the body that can lead to inflammation. It is only active in the body for a short time (2-4 hours), but the amount prescribed can be much higher than what the body makes naturally. People taking prednisolone should be aware of the risk of suppressing the body's hormone system and becoming more vulnerable to infections.
How Orapred works in the bodyCorticosteroids work to reduce inflammation in the body. They do this by affecting the flow of blood vessels and blocking white blood cells from travelling to sites of inflammation. Corticosteroids also change how certain genes are expressed, causing anti-inflammatory effects. Low doses reduce inflammation while high doses weaken the immune system. If taken for a long time, corticosteroids can cause an increase in sodium and decrease in potassium levels.

Orapred for Asthma
My daughter experienced some muscle soreness after taking this medication. It was bad enough that it was uncomfortable for her to even be touched.

Orapred for Asthma
I've been very pleased with this medication for my child's asthma. They don't become as hyperactive, which was a problem we experienced when using albuterol alone. The only downsides are that they sweat more and have increased appetite/thirst, but those are manageable compared to the benefits.

Orapred for Cancer of the Prostate Gland
This cough medicine was really effective for my son.

Orapred for Vocal Cord Swelling
Orapred has been effective at stopping my son's cough from croup, but he experiences severe side effects like crying and rubbing his eyes and ears obsessively. I'm glad it's only a 3 day course.

Orapred for Rash
My child became more hyperactive and began to hallucinate about bugs after taking this medication. Even though it got rid of the poison ivy, I would not recommend it for children.

Orapred for Asthma
My son needed this medication to recover from a severe asthma attack. It's syrup form is quite difficult to get him to take because it likely tastes awful, and he normally does well with taking medicines. As a side effect he's been extremely hyper, has reduced appetite and diarrhea, but this could be due to combination with Albuterol and Pulmicort.
2.7Patient Review
8/11/2009
Orapred for Asthma
My son has ADHD and asthma. When he takes orapred for his asthma, his ADHD becomes much more difficult to control. He is on medication ( focalin) for ADHD and I wonder if the combination of these two drugs creates this type of reaction in other children.
2.3Patient Review
10/18/2009
Orapred for Asthma
My son was on orapred for 5 days. Not only were his moods extremely erratic, but he would vomit in the evening only. Could the vomiting be another side effect? I know nausea can be a side effect, but vomiting too?

Orapred for Blistering Skin Diseases
I didn't see the results I wanted as quickly as I would have liked. The nurse actually gave me a script and left the room, suggesting I come back if the problem did not improve. Not great service or science!

Orapred for Bronchitis
It was pretty nightmarish trying to get my seven-month-old to swallow this. I can't imagine why anyone would think that's a reasonable amount for such a young child. We're going to try Veripred tomorrow instead.
