Corticosteroids may be an effective alternative to NSAIDs in acute gout pain
from Rheumatology Advisor
A review published in the Annals of Emergency Medicine concluded that, among patients with gout, there is no significant difference between corticosteroids and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for short-term pain relief, long-term pain relief, time to resolution of pain, or the need for additional analgesics. The meta-analysis identified 6 trials that met the inclusion criteria and included a total of 817 patients.
