What is Wysolone?
Wysolone containing the active ingredient prednisolone is a man made form of a corticosteroid hormone which is normally produced naturally by the adrenal glands. The medication works by suppressing the immune system to reduce various symptoms such as pain, inflammation and allergic type reactions. It can be used to treat a variety of different conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, severe allergies, skin conditions, ulcerative colitis, Crohnís disease, lupus, psoriasis and even some types of cancers.
How is Wysolone used?
Wysolone is usually taken orally 1 to 4 times per day or as directed by a doctor. The tablets should be taken with a meal and a glass of water or a glass of milk to prevent an upset stomach. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the patientís condition and their response to the therapy. Do not discontinue taking the tablets without consulting a doctor as abruptly stopping the treatment may cause severe withdrawal symptoms.
Patients using Wysolone may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
- Increased sweating

Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or encounter more severe side effects such as:
- Mental or mood change
