Cautions

Before taking cortisone, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to other corticosteroids (such as prednisone); or if you have any other allergies.

This medication may mask signs of infection. It can make you more likely to get infections or may make current infections worse. Stay away from anyone who has an infection that may easily spread (such as chickenpox, COVID-19, measles, or flu). Talk to your doctor if you have been exposed to an infection or for more details.

Using corticosteroid medications for a long time can make it more difficult for your body to respond to physical stress.

Tell your doctor right away if you develop unusual/extreme tiredness or weight loss.
