| | How long does prednisolone take to work?
Over the last year I've had loads of chest infections from colds (my own fault as I tried to come off my inhaler completely) so I had to have singulair and go on my inhalers for my asthma again. I got better but then I had another chest infection. It seemed to go but for the past 5 months or so I haven't had a cold or anything but the blocked nose from my last cold/chest infection never went and i've had really thick post nasal drip and a blocked nose ever since (especially after eating).
Also the post nasal drip is causing my asthma to play up and it's now affecting me going to the gym.
Over the pasts few months I've been to the doctors. Two have told me it's my asthma causing the post nasal drip and increased mucus and another told me it's allergies. One doctor gave me a higher dose of inhaler which didn't work, another doctor gave me Fluticasone Propionate spray along with singulair and cetirizine hydrochloride and I think it helped a tiny bit but not a lot. I'm now on Prednisolone 20mg daily (which I have to take for 10 days) for what the doctor thinks is my asthma, although I'm still convinced it's something to do with my nose, like allergies.
I've been on it for 5 days now and I haven't noticed any real change in my symptoms but I keep getting a bit depressed and feeling really light headed and sleepy which I'm guessing are side affects from the tablets.
Does anyone know how long prednisolone takes to work?
I don't know whether to go to the doctors again or just wait and see what happens but I'm moving for Uni this Saturday coming so I really need something to sort this problem out with fast.
