I was on 10 mg prednisone per day for almost a year. Is this a normal procedure for arthritis pain?
yes along with other meds like MTX (methotrexate) and or something like Enbrel the prednisone is usually used to keep the inflammation down while the other meds kick in which can take some time. i have taken 60 mg per day for 3 to 4 months at a time. when changing meds. hopefully this was the situation unless you cannot take the other meds.
