I’m going to be put on PEP which is a combination of truvada and Isentress due to a possible exposure to HIV and I was wondering if these drugs have the potential to induce iritis , and if so is it better to not take it?

Re: Tapper off Pred forte

Good to know. Yeah must be the tapering off the oral prednisone. Today is my last day of 10mg . Started at 40 mg two weeks ago and gradually came down, a bit of a heavy dose, but my iritis was really bad. But no eye redness or blurred vision now, so has to be from the oral. Thanks brotha.

Re: Pred forte and cataract

Nice . Any meds that can limit damage are well worth trying Incase if future flare up. That seems to make sense, I think you have to be using the steroid over an extended period for it to really cause damage. Thanks Vancouver !

Pred forte and cataract

Just curious, how quick can Pred forte cause cataract? Does it need to be a repeated use over months or can weeks cause it?

Re: Iritis cells thru pinhole

Oh okay I understand. Yeah it must be residual. Strange tho because yesterday my vision seemed better. Could be overthinking. I need to let it alone and just stick to med Regimine and then re evaluate in a day or so. When you have flare ups, how do you normally monitor it ? Thanks again for helping ...

Re: Iritis cells thru pinhole

got ya. yeah this is my first bout of it so its all experimental for me and my doc at this point. but uping the predfore to every 3 hours seems to be helping my vision less blurred so that's good. If I can avoid the oral steroids the better. but that's good to know tapering is very important, and no...

Re: Iritis cells thru pinhole

thanks Vancouver, just got emailed from my opthalmologist. they want me to up my pred forte to 8 times a day today, and decrease the oral prednisone. It seems they want me to be off that more than anything else. is this usually your regimen during flare ups?
