NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) are a group of treatments, which work decreasing pain and reducing fever. Taken in high doses, the medications can eliminate inflammation. The first NSAID that appeared on the pharmaceuticals market was Aspirin. Originally, the remedy was produced from chemicals isolated from the willow tree.
Irrespective of a great variety of positive effects Aspirin promotes on the body, it has been reported to cause a range of serious allergic reactions in certain groups of people. Additionally, if a patient experiences an allergy to Aspirin, it means he/she will not further tolerate the use of Naproxen, Ibuprofen or other NSAIDs.
Psychological reactions such as insomnia and irritability are common, but they are certainly not the only prednisone side effects. Some of these adverse consequences, such as osteopenia, diabetes or glaucoma, appear only after long-term use of the drug. Others, such as confusion, high blood pressure or a drop in potassium, can occur on a shorter time frame. The most serious prednisone side effects that may happen within a week or two of use are dangerous blood clots (deep vein thrombosis), blood infections (sepsis) and bone fractures (Waljee et al, BMJ , April 12, 2017 ).
