My mother lives in upper Illinois and called tonight all upset
from a surgeon who wants her to go back to her internist and have him order her
Presidone. She has severe spine problems, bowel excessive, and no bladder
control she is 78-years-old.
The surgeon said he wants her on this for 2 weeks and then see
her again.Why can't he order this drug for her? What is Presidone and what can
it do for her? Are there side effects? I can not find
anything on Presidone just Prednisone and I don't know if she is spelling it
wrong or is Presidone a new drug that is just not in my Physicians Desk
Reference. I am a medical office system student and my mom expects I am to have
all the answers for her. Can you help inform me about this matter?
