I don't know if different pharmacies do it differently, but here, they list common possible side effects, rare side effects, along with the other info. Anyway, last night I took something, didn't think anything of the itching I had as I went to bed, and then this morning I itched all over so bad I could hardly stand it (no hives though). I looked up the drug online (as we were on the road and I didn't have the pamphlet with me) and found that the itching is a rare side effect to the med. Crazy! I seem to always get the odd side effects, if I have any - none of the common ones!Answer Question

Yes.. I was put on Prednisone for 10 days (my asthma was acting up so bad to the point where I'd get an onset of breathlessness and I would wake up choking in my sleep), my doctor personally told me that this will lower my immune system so don't be surprised if I wake up with a bad cold etc. Of all the side effects listed on that pamphlet, mines was not there... a yeast infection. When I went back to my doctor his response was 'I told you it would lower your immune system' Never again will I take that medication even if I feel like I'm on my last breath
