My 24 m/o was prescribed this yesterday for swollen tonsils. Just after the second dose he went absolutely insane. SCREAMING, yelling, hitting, throwing and then he just stopped for a few minuets. He stopped after we give him gas drops. After a while he would start all over. Never again.

OMG. My two children (30 month and 18 month olds) each had allergic reaction to insect bites while vacationing out of town. The Dr. at the local hospital prescribed the prednisolone for 7 days.

My happy go lucky 30 month old had a screaming/cryi ... Show Full Comment

My 3 yr. old daughter was given this when she has croup. I didn't notice any effectiveness for her croup. After taking it 4 days she was up all night complaining mouth was sore.
