سحب البريدنيزون: لماذا أحتاج إلى تقليل الجرعة ببطء؟

إجابة من أبريل شانغ ميلر، (دكتور في الطب)

إذا توقفت فجأة عن تناول البريدنيزون أو خفضت جرعته بسرعة كبيرة، فقد تشعر بأعراض انسحاب البريدنيزون:

  • الإرهاق الشديد
  • الضعف
  • آلام الجسم
  • ألم المفاصل
  • الغثيان
  • فقدان الشهية
  • الدوخة

إن بريدنيزون يشبه الكورتيزول، وهو هرمون يتم إنتاجه طبيعيًا من الغدد الكظرية. إذا تناولت البريدنيزون لأكثر من بضعة أسابيع، فإن الغدد الكظرية لديك تقوم بتقليل إنتاج الكورتيزول. ولكن التقليل التدريجي لجرعات البريدنيزون يمنح الوقت للغدد الكظرية كي تستكمل وظيفتها بشكل طبيعي.

يعتمد الوقت الذي يستغرقه تخفيف جرعات البريدنيزون على المرض الذي يتم علاجه، والجرعة، ومدة الاستخدام، واعتبارات طبية أخرى. على أي حال، قد يستغرق التعافي التام من أسبوع إلى عدة أشهر. اتصل بالطبيب إذا شعرت بأعراض انسحاب البريدنيزون أثناء تخفيف جرعة الدواء.
