Prednisolone - Dosage and How to Use

How should Prednisolone be used?

​​It is taken orally as tablet. A high dose is used for the initial therapy or during periods when the condition worsens to suppress the inflammation quickly. The dosage is then tailed down gradually to the minimal dose needed to control the disease. The duration of treatment will depend on how your body responds to the treatment.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

​It is very important to avoid missing doses of Prednisolone.

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not double the dose to make up for the missed dose.
