Discussions that mention prednisone

Arthritis board

Hi Everyone,

I have used different anti inflammatory drugs, but not very many. I can not take Methotrexate, because I have too many sores. I take Relafen/Nabumetone (dont know if it is a anti inflammatory) and no side effects. I take Prednisone (I know it is a steriod, but one of the few things that work) and no side effects. Also, 2 more that are not anti inflammatory drugs: Ultram/Tramadol (a light pain med,) no side effects and Skelaxin (a muscle relaxer that is expensive, but does help).

All of my RA drugs are bad for my liver and my spleen and of course my stomach!!! :<

Hope you can find the right one(s) for you.
