Discussions that mention deltasone

Pain Management board

I just wanted to mention that there is indeed a small difference in the strength of certain generic meds.Enough so that my sons transplant docs told us that when he gets his prednisone refilled,it has to be Deltasone.This is what he was started out on as one of his anti rejection meds.His transplant co-ordinator told me that he has to have the deltasone only as there are some differences in the amount of actual prednisone in some other generic meds.With a transplant, you have to maintain a certain and definite level of meds or you will risk rejection.With him using the same generic everytime,we are pretty much guarenteed(as much as you can be i guess)that his pred level will remain more constant.so there IS a definite difference in some meds.Marcia
