I have left over prednisone for when my doctor was trying me on it to see if it could help with a problem i have and paid good money for it im wondering if it can be taken one off some days like a naproxen or such for quick pain relief like other NSAIDs?
Prednisone is not used for acute pain.
It plays a role in chronic pain (arthritis, other inflammatory conditions).
Can you describe your pain?
