Prednisone and Oral Thrush?

Does anyone know if prednisone can cause oral thrush? I've only had thrush once and it was from a different antibiotic than the two I've been on over the past 5 weeks, so the prednisone is the only new thing I've added. Last time I had it they gave me Mycelex lozenges.

I'm not sure that it's thrush yet, but I've got a funny taste in my mouth and I'm not on an antibiotic that causes a metallic taste.

Just curious...

Re: Prednisone and Oral Thrush?

even though you are not on an antibiotic right at the moment, the thrush can still have been caused by them. it can take a little time to develop. i get it constantly as after being on anti's for a year for lyme, i am infested with candida now and can get rid of it. yes, the losengers help, and there is another perscription i now use that is called nystantin which is a swish and swallow liquid for thrush.
the presnisone could be causing the thrush i guess, but my guess is the anti's you were recently on. eat yogurt as well, this helps and take acidolphus. i take it every day.
good luck
