Deltasone, Orasone etc. (Prednisone)

Prednisone is a corticosteroid taken orally that works by decreasing inflammation and suppressing the activity of the immune system with similar effects like other corticosteroids. It can be used as a short-term remedy for hives but general opinion is that it shouldn’t be used chronically as steroids often can cause unwanted side effects, from minor like acne, weight gain, and swelling to major like osteoporosis, weakness, and depression. Prednisone is also used to treat asthma and other autoimmune diseases like arthritis, colitis, and bronchitis as well as allergic or inflammatory conditions.
