Prednisolone has irritated my tummy

Can anyone advise on how to take Prednisolone, the non-coated type? I've got a painful burning stomach today and haven't been able to take my dose of 10 mg. I'm using HC cream transdermally instead. I'm sure the Pred has irritated my stomach and I hope that's all it's done. I did take it with food.

My doctor can't prescribe a coated type because at the moment he's been stopped prescribing by the GMC, because was making people better. He's quite famous with the PA Society.

  • Joeyis, I'm sorry you haven't had any replies. Can you leave off the pred until your stomach feels better in case it is a tummy upset rather than reaction to the pred. Perhaps try it immediately after you've eaten so that your stomach is lined with food to see whether that helps.

  • Thank, you, Clutter. I have moved onto HC cream and it is almost as effective.


  • Joeyis7, I hope the stomach pains have stopped too.

  • Yes, I am ok, thank you!
