IV Pred

I am in the hospital for an obstruction and receiving IV pred to get the inflammation down. Any ballparks for how long it should take to kick in? Getting 40 mg three times a day. Think I have now had 6 or so doses.

I was in the hospital with a partial obstruction in April on IV Prednisone and it worked in about a day and a half with large amounts of laxatives. With a full obstruction, I imagine it will take a little more time. Sounds like you are getting a lot and you should be able to know how well it is working very soon. I hope it kicks in soon!!

Thanks! I think mine also partial. No laxatives, thankfully. Just lots of prednisone by IV and lots of fluids. Getting better and hope to be out tomorrow.
