Short Term Prednisone for bronchitis and AIDS

Oct 5, 2013

Can an AIDS pt with undetectable viral load take short term Prednisone therapy? Any contraindications?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

While steroids should only be used if there's a medical indication, it's is ok to use them in people living with HIV. Indeed, prednisone is recommended for people with severe PCP.

Hope that helps, BY
