About me

We are two graduates who previously attended Dr Challoner’s Grammar School in Amersham. From an early age we both competed in regional hiking competitions with the Scouts, winning various hikes. We have decided to take on the 'ultimate challenge'. We shall drive from Buckinghamshire, to Die Hel (South Africa) via the east African coast before returning home via the west coast. This circumnavigation of Africa is our year out following University and before we must enter the world of work. The entire trip is in aid of two charities; Link Ethiopia and Alzheimer's Research UK. It's going to be long and tough, but we are determined to succeed.

The Many Uses of Prednisone Generic You Need to Know

Almost all of us do tend to ignore the pharmacy or drugstore until we are in need of medications.  There are some medicines that we are allowed to buy even without any doctor’s prescriptions, while there are drugs that the pharmacist requires us to show our doctor’s prescription before they allow us to buy from them.  You may have probably encountered the name of the medicine prednisone generic before, and if you did, then you or someone you know may have suffered from an inflamed area in the body.

Prednisone generic is classified as a man-made corticosteroid medicine that is proven to be very effective as a drug with immunosuppressive properties.  Prednisone generic is mainly used for the treatment of specific inflammatory diseases, for example, moderate allergic attacks.  Due to the fact that prednisone generic significantly suppresses the body’s immune system, it renders the user more prone to getting infections.

Prednisone generic is a very useful medicine as it can treat a lot of different health issues including rheumatic disorders, asthma, allergies, hypercalcemia caused by cancer, laryngitis, thyroiditis, urticaria or hives, pericarditis, lupus, nephrotic syndrome, pneumonitis, tuberculosis, Crohn’s disease, myasthenia gravis, exposure to poison oak, sarcoidosis, and many more.  Prednisone generic has also been recommended to patients who suffer from cluster headaches and migraine headaches.  In patients suffering from severe aphthous ulcers, prednisone generic has proven to relieve them from the pain and inflammation.  In cases of hormone-sensitive tumors, prednisone generic used along with other anti-cancer drugs have shown significant improvement in patients who have lymphomas, myelomas and even lymphoblastic leukemia.  Read more…
