Pseudogout is a form of arthritis characterized by sudden, painful swelling in one or more of your joints. These episodes can last for days or weeks. The most commonly affected joint is the knee.

Methylprednisolone is a corticosteroid often prescribed to reduce inflammation and end the attack.

Advil (ibuprofen) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and is used to treat pain or inflammation caused by many conditions including arthritis.

Check with your doctor before taking Advil. The combination can increase your chances of gastric irritation and bleeding. This could be problematic if you have a history of peptic ulcer disease or GI bleeding .
