and respiratory failure. Children under the age of one month suprastin is only recommended when there is no safer alternative. With extreme caution should be taken suprastin people with peptic ulcer disease, and those who take MAO inhibitors and other drugs that suppress the activity of the central nervous system.
The most common side effects are suprastin

, Hyperactivity, hallucinations, seizures, ataxia, athetosis, facial flushing, immobility of the pupils, hyperthermia, mydriasis; in severe cases, and in the absence of medical care - vascular collapse and coma. Symptoms of an overdose in adults are depression, lethargy, hyperthermia and flushing of the skin, agitation, seizures and coma. The most serious consequences occur when a significant excess of the permissible dose, and how the absence of any measures to alleviate the patient's condition. With a small overdose can try on their own to induce vomiting, take activated charcoal

Prednisolone allergies - used with caution
September 9, 2012
Prednisolone has a pronounced anti-allergic properties, but allergies do not always use it. It will prednisone in anaphylactic shock, because not only has anti-allergic, but protivosokovmi properties - activates the adrenaline. In chronic allergic diseases prednisone administered in extreme cases.
As prednisolone acts on allergic processes
Prednisolone inhibits the synthesis and secretion of biologically active substances that cause allergic reactions, such as histamine. Under the effect of decreasing the number of basophils prednisolone (blood cells involved in allergic reactions) and decreasing the permeability of small blood vessels (capillaries) that reduces swelling and itching, which usually accompany allergic reaction. It reduces the number of exudate - tissue fluid, the selection of which is also characteristic of allergies. Furthermore, prednisolone suppresses excessive activity of the immune system, which is the cause of allergic reactions.
Prednisone may help in anaphylactic shock caused by a sudden sharp drop in blood pressure under the influence of substances that cause allergic reactions.
This happens due to the fact that when administered intravenously prednisolone instantly activates the stress hormone

adrenaline, which causes a sharp narrowing of blood vessels and raising blood pressure - it saves man from anaphylactic shock.
However, prednisone has many other effects which adversely affect the patients with allergic diseases. So too strong immune suppression leads to allergic processes that joins a bacterial or fungal infection.
With prolonged use of prednisone disrupt metabolism

, Contributing to increased degradation of protein and the formation of the products of its glucose metabolism. Reducing the amount of protein in the blood particularly negative impact on the development of children and adolescents: they can occur dysplasia.
A large amount of glucose in the blood can cause steroid diabetes. Under the influence of progesterone changes and fat metabolism: it produced increased amounts of fat that is deposited mainly in the upper part of the body, disrupting the proportions of the figure.
Finally, long-term use of prednisone suppresses adrenocortical function and reduces the secretion of the body's own (endogenous) glucocorticosteroid (GCS) hormones. This leads to suppression of the synthesis and secretion of pituitary gonadotropins, which affects the sexual function of patients: women disrupted menstrual cycle, and men develop impotence

If any allergic diseases prednisolone
Prednisone can be administered at any allergic diseases when they occur very hard. A feature of this formulation is that during short-term treatment it has almost no side effects.
In this regard, it is administered, for example, in severe asthma when inhaled corticosteroids can not be shaped to remove bronchospasm attacks. Nominated short course of prednisolone
Prednisolone - against inflammation, allergy and pain, but with complications
In this case, quickly relieves allergic reaction and restores normal breathing, which allows to return to the previous course of treatment.
As is the case with skin diseases, which are based on allergic processes such as atopic (congenital allergic) dermatitis in children and eczema in adults. These patients with very severe exacerbations when conventional treatment comes to a standstill, a short course of prednisone. Babies prednisone is prescribed less often than adults because it can cause growth retardation children. However, sometimes it is necessary to resort to such treatment.
If hay fever (allergic rhinitis and conjunctivitis caused by pollen) and perennial allergic rhinitis, prednisolone almost never used. But sometimes, when the disease is difficult and there is a threat to the transition to a different kind of allergic process (for example, asthma, which happens quite often), short courses of prednisone to help remove the threat.
Single use of prednisolone, even in very high doses, usually does not cause side effects and overdose.
Large doses of prednisone administered intravenously in anaphylactic shock, it allows you to save patient lives without any health effects.
Prednisone - is an effective tool for the treatment of allergies, which is used quite frequently, but only on prescription.
