Commonly asked questions about Pred-X Tablets:

What are Pred-X (Prednisolone) Tablets?

PrednisoLONE and PredniSONE are two prescription glucocorticoid steroid medications that are commonly confused. PredniSONE is converted to the active component PrednisoLONE by the liver. PrednisoLONE is often used to treat inflammation, to suppress the immune system, to replace or supplement adrenal insufficient animals, or to inhibit the growth or spread of tumours. Horses, cats, and pets with liver failure will need to be given PrednisoLONE instead of PredniSONE to achieve the desired treatment because they are unable to convert PredniSONE efficiently to PrednisoLONE.

Why do dogs use Pred-X?

Pred-X may be prescribed to treat hypoadrenocorticism (Addison's disease). Pred-X may also be prescribed to reduce inflammation, suppress the immune system, or as an anticancer agent.

What problems could my dog have with Pred-X?

When using Pred-X, veterinarians want to use the least amount of medication needed to effectively treat your pet to reduce the side effects. Pred-X has many side effects. Side effects are more likely with long term use and higher doses. The most common side effects of Pred-X are increased appetite, thirst, and need to urinate. Dogs may have serious side effects such as stomach or intestinal ulcers, perforation, or bleeding. If your dog stops eating, or you notice signs such as high fever, black, tarry stools, or bloody vomit, contact your veterinarian immediately.

How do you use Pred-X?

Pred-X should be given with food. Follow your veterinarian's directions. Do not stop giving Pred-X without talking to your veterinarian as serious side effects may result.

What is in Pred-X?

The active ingredient in Pred-X is Prednisolone. Prednisolone is a glucocorticoid or hormone that breaks down fats, carbohydrates, and proteins so that they can be used to fuel the body in times of stress.
