Is it okay to take Prednisone if you have vomiting and diarrhoea ?

Hi All

Not well today, up during the night with what seems Nora virus symptoms 😨. The thoughts of food making me feel so darn sick !!! I just wanted any advice if I should skip my prednisone tablet today. (I am in the weaning off stage and suppose to take with food.

Posting just in case I can’t get through to Rheumy nurse.

Feedback appreciated.

I imagine it's ok to take it as a single dose unlikely to affect the infection. But whether it will actually get absorbed is another matter, as may well come straight out again!

Symapthy tho'. I had a bout of norovirus a few years back and remember how horrid it was. Luckily doesn't usually last long.

Thank you Helix. I shall take it later with fruit. It certainly is an awful virus. Hopefully better soon. Rheumy nurse, as I thought usual voicemail so may get back to me Monday. Hope all is well for you.
