More about Prednicarbate

What is/are Prednicarbate?

Prednicarbate is a relatively new topical corticosteroid drug. It is similar in potency to hydrocortisone. Compared to other topical corticosteroids, like betamethasone, repeated prednicarbate use does not cause skin atrophy as quickly.[citation needed] Corticosteroids have always been an important part of the pharmacological arsenal of dermatology; however, their tendency to produce side-effects has caused the need to search for new preparations. It is nonhalogenated.

Adverse effects

  •     Blurred vision, or seeing halos around lights;
  •     Mood changes;
  •     Sleep problems (insomnia);
  •     Weight gain, puffiness in your face; or
  •     Muscle weakness, feeling tired.

Less serious side effects of prednicarbate topical may include:

  •     Mild skin rash, itching, burning, swelling, or dryness;
  •     Thinning or softening of your skin;
  •     Skin rash or irritation around your mouth;
  •     Swollen hair follicles;
  •     Numbness or tingling;
  •     Changes in color of treated skin;
  •     Blisters, pimples, or crusting of treated skin; or

Cortef (Hydrocortisone) has been very helpful

Have CFS as a result of a past illness. At times, I get flare ups that cause me to barely be able to get off couch for days at a time.
Dr presribed Cortef and it changed my life.
Not only did it get me off the couch, but I feel human for the first time in a long time.

Downside to some people may be that Drs do want to monitor blood work to ensure all is well. There is a bit of an art finding the correct dose.
I know there are long term use side effects, but seems like this med gets a bad rap. Just do your research.
