    should pain treatment (prednisone/naprox.etc) be initiated prior to allopurinol treatment or be delayed? if it is prior, how long before first dose of allop.(100 mg)? have said it before will say it again……..excellent website.

    Personally, I don’t think steroids such as prednisone have a place, but that obviously depends on personal circumstances.

    Where pain control is take as a preventative, it is best to start the day before starting allopurinol. But, if pain control is “as required”, then start allopurinol first.
