Did a vet prescribe this? Steroids are usually a last-resort treatment for arthritis because of their side-effects. Have other treatments been tried? Which ones? I have not personally used steroids for an arthritic dog, but I can see how they might provide some relief. I can't see, however, why they would be used unless other, safer treatments have failed.

Stay in touch with the clinic as it's the only way to be sure. They can do the relevant tests if necessary. Just take the medication as directed - they should last until it's cleared up. Once your medication has finished, speak to your doctor or STD clinic. Answered by Shanae Schwizer 1 year ago.

Generally a person is considered cured when the courses of medications are completed. If after having completed the regimen you are still concerned, ask to be rescreened 24 hours after completion.

Why are steroids given to reduce inflammation?
I was recently in the hospital with a viral respiratory infection and was given a heavy dose of prednisone, which I am told is a steroid to bring down inflammation. How do steroids reduce inflammation and why are they prescribed? Asked by Lexie Scot 1 year ago.

Prednisone is a steroid. Steroids are a group of hormones with similar chemical structures. They are normally produced by your adrenal glands, located on top of your kidneys, and your reproductive organs (ovaries and testicles). Steroids help control metabolism, inflammation, immune function, salt and water balance, development of sexual characteristics and your ability to withstand the stress of illness and injury. One of the steroids produced by the outer portion of the adrenal glands is called cortisone. It normally helps regulate the body's salt and water balance and reduces inflammation. Introduced in 1955, prednisone is a man-made replica of cortisone. The adrenal glands normally produces an amount of steroids equivalent to about 5 mg. of prednisone a day. When prescribed in doses that exceed natural levels, prednisone suppresses inflammation and can help treat a variety of diseases such as severe allergies or skin problems, asthma, arthritis, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn's disease. Prednisone is also used to help prevent rejection of organ transplants. Prednisone is the generic form; some common brand names are Deltasone, Meticorten, Orasone, and SK-Prednisone. Prednisone is not the same as the dangerous anabolic steroids used by weight lifters to increase muscle mass. It is not a sex hormone like testosterone or estrogen and does not cause sexual dysfunction. Prednisone is not addictive. It does not cause drowsiness and in the usual doses will not affect your driving or working. There is no special food interaction and mild alcohol consumption is not a problem on prednisone. The exact mechanism of how prednisone works is not known. Answered by Stefan Perun 1 year ago.

Steroids Reduce Inflammation Answered by Kimbery Louras 1 year ago.

WOW Ney that was a lot of information!! Basically steroids inhibit the production of hormones that cause inflammation. Inflammation causes pain and in some cases like the lungs interferes with the operation of the organ or joint. Answered by Keisha Mihaly 1 year ago.

Well the term steroids encompasses many hormones of the body belonging to one family of steroids. Steroids are lipids with carbon skeleton.Those that regulate sexual functions, those that regulate other body functions as in metabolism , control of water loss from kidneys etc. you know cholesterol has its precursors similar to those of steroids and is utilised for production of some steroids Prednisone is a synthetic corticosteroid. Corticosteroids are secreted by the cortical portion of the adrenal gland. They interfere with the inflammatory action and inhibit the prostaglandin synthesis. The other functions are to regulate carbohydrate, lipid and protein metabolism. Prednisone is not the anabolic steroid taken by athletics. Answered by Tabatha Calligaro 1 year ago.

These are the ones that were prescribed to me: Creams: Gelmicin and Fudicin Pills: Fungoral, Meticorten, & aciclovir How do i know if i have been cured? And how long does it usually take? Asked by Penney Kader 1 year ago.

Dude If that is the meds you have been prescribed you are not! Topic creams do not kill G bug and Fungoral is for fungi (mushrooms, you know), Meticorten is a steroid (to cope with inflammation) and Aciclovir is for Herpes virus... Have you gone to a vet??

Stay in touch with the clinic as it's the only way to be sure. They can do the relevant tests if necessary. Just take the medication as directed - they should last until it's cleared up. Once your medication has finished, speak to your doctor or STD clinic. Answered by Lizzie Woytowicz 1 year ago.

Generally a person is considered cured when the courses of medications are completed. If after having completed the regimen you are still concerned, ask to be rescreened 24 hours after completion.

Why are steroids given to reduce inflammation?
I was recently in the hospital with a viral respiratory infection and was given a heavy dose of prednisone, which I am told is a steroid to bring down inflammation. How do steroids reduce inflammation and why are they prescribed? Asked by Sherry Lowrie 1 year ago.

Prednisone is a steroid. Steroids are a group of hormones with similar chemical structures. They are normally produced by your adrenal glands, located on top of your kidneys, and your reproductive organs (ovaries and testicles). Steroids help control metabolism, inflammation, immune function, salt and water balance, development of sexual characteristics and your ability to withstand the stress of illness and injury. One of the steroids produced by the outer portion of the adrenal glands is called cortisone. It normally helps regulate the body's salt and water balance and reduces inflammation. Introduced in 1955, prednisone is a man-made replica of cortisone. The adrenal glands normally produces an amount of steroids equivalent to about 5 mg. of prednisone a day. When prescribed in doses that exceed natural levels, prednisone suppresses inflammation and can help treat a variety of diseases such as severe allergies or skin problems, asthma, arthritis, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn's disease. Prednisone is also used to help prevent rejection of organ transplants. Prednisone is the generic form; some common brand names are Deltasone, Meticorten, Orasone, and SK-Prednisone. Prednisone is not the same as the dangerous anabolic steroids used by weight lifters to increase muscle mass. It is not a sex hormone like testosterone or estrogen and does not cause sexual dysfunction. Prednisone is not addictive. It does not cause drowsiness and in the usual doses will not affect your driving or working. There is no special food interaction and mild alcohol consumption is not a problem on prednisone. The exact mechanism of how prednisone works is not known. Answered by Bradly Brezina 1 year ago.

Steroids Reduce Inflammation Answered by Nikki Fenley 1 year ago.

WOW Ney that was a lot of information!! Basically steroids inhibit the production of hormones that cause inflammation. Inflammation causes pain and in some cases like the lungs interferes with the operation of the organ or joint. Answered by Carley Neigh 1 year ago.

Well the term steroids encompasses many hormones of the body belonging to one family of steroids. Steroids are lipids with carbon skeleton.Those that regulate sexual functions, those that regulate other body functions as in metabolism , control of water loss from kidneys etc. you know cholesterol has its precursors similar to those of steroids and is utilised for production of some steroids Prednisone is a synthetic corticosteroid. Corticosteroids are secreted by the cortical portion of the adrenal gland. They interfere with the inflammatory action and inhibit the prostaglandin synthesis. The other functions are to regulate carbohydrate, lipid and protein metabolism. Prednisone is not the anabolic steroid taken by athletics. Answered by Raymundo Beanblossom 1 year ago.
