What is Wysolone (Prednisolone) used for?
Wysolone (Prednisolone) is an oral corticosteroid medication used to treat a wide variety of inflammatory conditions. The medication operates by preventing the actions of certain enzymes in the body that are released in response to injury that cause the pain, swelling, and irritation associated with these conditions. This makes it useful for treating conditions including rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory lung disorders, allergic reactions, inflammation of the arteries, or inflammation of the tendons or soft tissues. Your doctor may prescribe this medication to be used along with others or for the treatment of other unlisted conditions, as well.
How should I use Wysolone (Prednisolone)?
Wysolone (Prednisolone) is normally prescribed to be taken up to four times each day at a dosage of one tablet, but your individual directions will be determined by your doctor based on your age, weight, current health, the conditions being treated, and the severity of your symptoms. These should be swallowed with a large glass of water and may be taken on an empty stomach, although a snack or meal is suggested before use if you get an upset stomach. Do not chew, split, or crush the tablets prior to taking them to avoid unintentionally destroying or altering the effects of their contents. Ask your pharmacist or doctor any questions you have about using the medicine to ensure the correct administration.
What are the side effects of Wysolone (Prednisolone)?

Stop using the medication and contact your doctor as soon as possible if any intense or worrying side effects occur such as severe headaches, vision problems, unusual swelling, low potassium levels, pancreatitis, severe hypertension, symptoms of depression, or seizures.

These conditions may require special adjustments to your regimen to prevent unexpected health problems from occurring.
