Discussions that mention prednisone

Allergies board

I have developed several new allergies "late in life"(55+). As I was explained by my allergist that everyone's bodies handle allergens differently. Your body will get to a point where it says enough enough...I never had problems with eggs or milk but now I do. Same with drugs sometimes I can only take a specific drug for only so long and then I go into anaphaltic shock.
Do you get allergy shots or take a medication? If not I would say try an anti histamine like Benadryl. If the cause of your discomfort is from allergies then an antibiotic or pneumonia shot won't help.
I had some severe sinis trouble and I was prescribed a prednisone to elevate the pressure.
