Discussions that mention deltasone

Pain Management board

I know one thing for sure about prednisone.My son has a transplanted liver,and the transplant center and the hospital where he had the transplant always make sure that his prednisone is Deltasone.His Tx co-ordinator told me when I asked why the specifics,that there definitely IS enough of a difference in some meds that once they set the dose with the deltasone that nothing else can be used as the variations in the drug make up are way to wide to get the exact same dosage with any other form of generic prednisone.i was really suprised at what she told me.but with transplants,like dave stated, the meds have to be exact every time you take them in order for you to maintain an anti rejection status.The amount definetly DOES matter.Marcia
