I immediately got what I thought was a UTI after getting prescribed prednisone after a RA flare. I’ve been on antibiotics for 3 days and I’m still having problems emptying my bladder all the way. It’s miserable as we are driving and will be on the road for two days. Do I need to worry? Is this a normal side effect of prednisone that will go away after I’m off it?
I have been on prednisone for a while too Drink lots of water and your problem should clear up I drink anywhere from one to two gallons of water every day so i go very often to the bathroom. I make a juice out of lemons, oranges and ginger roots. Boil them in a big pot for about two hours. let it cool and sting it out. I put about one half cup in every glass of my water. Now i have been drinking this for 5 years now and if nothing else I have not had a cold or flu since It is not very good taste but you will get use to it lol it real sour but i stop doing sugar so that's good to me
Prednisone makes you at risk for UTIs ,bladder and vaginal infections and thrush but needs treatment
After I had been taking prednisone for a while, I started getting UTIs after every time I took a prednisone pill. My doctor switched me to methylprednisolone after a while and I had less side effects with it.
Sometimes UTI can still be in your system, I hope you were able to talk to your doctor. If your lab show no UTI, talk to your OB, it could be from needing estrogen cream.
