I was put on prednisone, started it yesterday, along with prilosec.
Went out last night and had 1 1/2 screwdivers. Suddenly I had the most extreme stomach pain. Felt like a hot knife in my gut. I could barely move and the more I stressed over it the worse it got. Took 4 tums an a zantac. It took a good 2 hours for the pain to subside. Still slightly burns today.
What is going on? Is it the new med? I do also take 150mg of morphine per day for cronic back pain.
