Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • I have been taking 20 mg of prednisone for 5 days. i just starting coughing up bright red blood. i am 81 years old and have non small cell lung cancer. can this drug cause bleeding?
    I have had lung cancer for 6 years. I am on oxygen. My breathing is getting gradually worse: however I just got prescribed 20 prednisone. I took 3 20 mg tablets the first three days, the next two days just one 20 mg a day. Them that night after the 5 days on the 20 mg I starting coughing up bright red blood. I have non pain associated with this. I have now been given only 10 mg of prednisone to try once a day. This s the first day on it and so far I am not coughing up any blood. Can prednisone cause a llung cancer patient to cough up blood if the dosage is too high? And is so, is there a substitute med to take it's place to try. It has been 6 years since I went through all the Chemo treatments. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Joyce
