Is it common practise for doctors to prescribe, low dose steroids before Antibiotics?
I am helping out a young lady who is 19 years old. She has been placed in the position, of looking after her 15 year old sister. Mum is suffering from a mental illness. During a discussion, she mentioned to me that their family doctor prescribes low dose steriods before a course of Antibiotics. She said her mum, sister and herself have been receiving them for years like that. I am very concerned. Q. could this explain her mums deep depression? Q. Is this hurting the girls, they are still growing? She said it is some sort of genetic fault. I am not a doctor but I have never heard of it. Help!
If you have an autoimmune disorder prior to any infections occurring, then yes. For example, someone who suffers from asthma or even allergies and though the individual may be in remission from asthma, if they contract strep and are having difficulty breathing may receive corticosteroids prior to antibiotic therapy.
