can i take prednisone 10 mg for slight pain just one time ? i have prescription for 10 days but my pain is not extreme so i would like to take just one pill to easy the inflammation
Yes you can. But you can also take 5 mg. Just cut it in half. Take it the same time every day. You can take it for just a few days too.
I don't know why doctors are prescribing this for every little inflammation. It's a very bad drug with many awful side effects especially if taken long term. My husband has bad elbow pain and inflammation And uses Breeze. It works very well.
