Opthalmic Steroids after cataract surgery while weaning off Prednisone
Has anybody else had experience of being prescribed Prednisolone, or other steroids in form of eye drops ,after cataract surgery? I was prescribed this 8 days ago but, being on the high you get after successful procedures, only looked closely at the bottle a day or so ago. I told the hospital I was on prednisone for pmr, although a very low dose, 1 m.g. and they made no comment. But my question is these two drugs must be very similar so how much does putting the eye drops in affect my reducing prednisone, if at all. Supposed to be for four weeks and then if I get the other eye done another month. I will be seeing my G.P. in a few days to ask but this group has such a lot of knowledge and experience thought I would ask here.I might be making a mountain out of a mole hill.
