@lynd, I normally take Tylenol when I have a headache but I don't have one often. I'm wondering if Teri @tsc might have some thoughts on what helps best when you also have PMR and possibly GCA. Are you able to call the rheumatologist or your doctor and ask when over the counter med would be best for you?
Hi @johnbishop and @lynd, acetaminophen is the analgesic recommended for pain when taking prednisone. The standard dosage is two 325 mg pills or tablets. NSAIDS like Ibuphrophen should be avoided when taking prednisone.
