Hello

Customer:

Please can you answer the question I put up

Dr Owen :

let me write for you

I do not understand

Dr Owen :



Yes you can take steroids and usually taking Prednisone is what is given in pregnancy

Customer:

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX can I take it for

Dr Owen :

You can take it throughout your pregnancy

Dr Owen :

I would suggest that you work with your ob/gyn for this.

ALSO this is VERY IMPORTANT when you are delivering your baby - you will need to get what is known as STRESS DOSE steroids

Dr Owen :

The steroid for this is called Hydrocortisone and the dose is 100mg Intravenously every 8 hours
