    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. We stopped at two and a half. It stopped the swelling which had swollen the 18 month old's eye shut but the fits and tyrades were out of control. My happy go lucky 30 month old had a screaming/cryi ... Show Full Comment

Sure enough, little white bumps all over the inside of her cheeks and throat. I was enraged finding that my daughter then had thrush...being someone who has suffered from thrush as an adult, one of the worst pains ... Show Full Comment
