Hisone 20 mg
Hisone is used to treat many conditions, such as joint problems, severe allergic reactions, certain skin or eye conditions, certain problems with the blood/hormones/immune system, a certain bowel problem (ulcerative colitis), swelling, and worsening multiple sclerosis. Hisone is a glucocorticoid hormone. It decreases your body's natural defensive response and reduces symptoms such as redness and swelling.
Take Hisone by mouth with food or milk, usually 3 or 4 times daily or as directed by your doctor. The dosage and length of treatment are based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Use Hisone regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same times each day. It is important to continue taking Hisone even if you feel well. Follow the dosing schedule carefully, and take Hisone exactly as prescribed. Cholestyramine and colestipol may decrease the absorption of this medication. If you are taking either of these drugs, separate them from this medication by at least 4 hours. If you take Hisone once daily, take it in the morning before 9.
If you are taking Hisone every other day or on some other schedule besides a daily one, it may help to mark your calendar with a reminder. If you have been taking Hisone for a long time, do not suddenly stop taking it without consulting your doctor. Your condition may become worse when the drug is suddenly stopped. Your dose may need to be gradually decreased to reduce symptoms such as extreme tiredness, weakness, weight loss, or nausea.
Hisone may cause increased appetite, indigestion or anxiety. Other side effects are less common, such as increased growth of hair on the face, muscle and bone ache, eyesight problems. Alert your doctor if you experience any sudden weight gain, swelling of legs or arms, breathlessness, stomach pain, severe vomiting, black or thick stools, extreme tiredness, muscle weakness or unusual mood swings.These side effects are usually not a cause for concern if you are only using Hisone for a short period of time.
