General Surgeon 's  Response
Hello,

Prednisolone is the first drug of choice for PMR however if you want an alternative then I suggest Tab HCQS twice daily. Please discuss with your doctor about my suggestion.

The pain killer depends on the intensity of the pain. I usually give tablet paracetamol for mild pain, if the pain is moderate I suggest tablet aceclofenac, for severe pain I prescribe tab diclofenac or opiod analgesics like tramadol.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Iven Romic Rommstein
