Hello worriedman198, Prednisolone - the active form of prednisone. According to the reference book I'm currently looking at, The Canadian Guide to Drugs and Supplements" published by Reader's Digest, prednisone/prednisolone, has the following information for users. * Your drug prescription is tailored for you. Do not alter dosage without checking with your physician. Frequency and timing of doses 1 - 2 x daily or on alternate days with food ( tablets/injections)
The above doesn't answer the question. It does say how long the stuff works for, but doesn't indicate how long it is stored in the body. I don't know the answer, it depends on whether any part of the drug is fat soluble, which means some of it could be stored in the liver for quite a while. Doesn't mean you notice it. Most drugs get partially stored in the liver because they're toxic to the body, so the body fights back, and one way of doing that is to hold on to part of it. Drugs are made so as to overcome the body's rejection of them, but some does get stored. How much depends on the person and how much you take and how fat soluble it is.
