Ravi Meher will always give steroids. Almost 90% will improve without any treatment. And a we can not be told at the start of treatment that he kids in 90% or 10% group.

Rakesh Srivastava I remember an OCNA published in 1994, stated no role of steroids in bell's palsy. I do not know the present status, but in practice I think most of ENT surgeons prescribe steroids. Dr Ravi Meher is right.

Surya Prakash the scottish trial says prednisolone 1mg perkg per day, untapered, for total of ten days. this works better than all other protocols of giving steroids if the facial palsy is idiopathic.

Ninad S Narkar Bell's palsy is a diagnosis of exclusion. If it does not respond to two weeks of treatment, then reconsider the diagnosis. We find good results when Acyclovir is given in addition to steroids.

Ninad S Narkar ‎@ Amit ... No offence intended. But we treat patients not articles. If patients benefit with acyclovir, the matter ends there. If we go by all the above articles we are left with no pharmocological treatment. Only reassurance. Will the patient come back to you if you just reassure and do not give any medicines?
February 23 at 12:13am · Like

Amit Keshri sir the article says prednisolone is the treatment,but the article is a large multicentre trial,and we also not now prescribe acyclovir which i did in residency days and patients improved without it...i think today is era of evidence based medicine....but at same time opinions in medicine differ...everyone is free to choose what drugs he use..........and in bells palsy we treat nerve edema..which responds well to steroids..
