Does Your Medication Cause Heartburn? These Tips May Bring Relief
The steroids have given me a big appetite, so i have been eating lots more than usual, so that probably doesnt help the indigestion!
Yes, i try to make sure i take them when just eaten. Thankyou for replying, even though we all differ , it's good to share experiences. Ah, the white ones I get a terrible tum if I take those, so have to insist on coated prednisolone, but, as you say, we are all different and react in different ways. The NHS have advised doctors to prescribe the uncoated type as they are a fraction of the price, only giving the red coated ones to those patients who have had a bad reaction.
When i went to the hosp to use nebuliser they gave me 8 red ones, but sent me home with white. I have been sucing rennies that help. I shall mention to my doctor though. It's not pleasant, dont sleep much as it is, so this heartburn doesnt help. Anyway have just finished this course of prednisolone so hopefully my digestion will get back to normal. I stopped smoking a month ago it's hell trying to cope with craving , but i am determined not to start again.
Usually you are prescribed omeprazole with prednisolone because they do give you indigestion. Speak to your GP about getting hold of some. Thankyou Marie, yes, will mention to my doctor next week. I will take heed.
As you say, things affect people differently, but it's good to hear peoples opinions. I don't get any side effects with Pred. No farting or burping. I take Omeprazole all the time and only experienced gale force winds for the first couple of weeks until the body got used to them! Ask your GP for the soluble version of prednisolone, they stopped all my indegestion problems, even the hospital give them to me without a problem.
They do cost a little more so they tell me , but they are not on a banned list and really do help. Health tools and topics Menu Have an account? Log in Health tools. Log in Sign up.
