Hello gout man. Your question is curious. Are you saying this was prescribed or are you asking should you be taking it and your doc overlooked it?
Prednisone is an anti inflammatory medicine and surpresses the immune system and it can help reduce pain from inflammation. Gout is formed by the build up of urea crystals in the joints. I believe you should ask your doc some important questions to better understand what prednisone would do for you and what is happening with your level of disease.
More info with your question would also help. Take care and hope you find some relief.
