The correct name for this is PANAFCORT (5mg) - A corticosteroid containing prednisone
It can be used in children, and the dose is not excessive, but it should only be used long-term when essential, and then only in the lowest effective dose. To prevent many of the adverse effects associated with this drug, it is often given only every 2nd day
