My doc gave me 10mg of prednisone to reduce some inflammation/swelling in my arms. When i take it, i dont noticed any improvements right away. Is there any other medicine that i can take?

How long have you been taking it????It does take some time for prednisone to kick in. What about Naproxen that's an anti inflammatory. If you son't mind me asking why is there swelling in your arms?? Is it painful??

Default Inflammation Solution

Inflammation can be very painful, yet a common experience for many people. It is the body's natural response to illness and certain infections. Inflammation can be treated naturally without the harsh side effects of prescription medications. There is a safer, natural way to reduce the pain associated with inflammation.

You need to take the entire dosage (5 days? or whatever) and then see if there is improvement....you should see improvement in 3 to 5 days.
