How Long For Some Relief With Prednisone?

Doctor just started me on 5mg of prednisone 3 times a day. How long does it usually take to feel some improvements from the pain and swelling?

Answer

I just got a 20mg injection, and am taking 20mg orally twice a day. Can't say it is doing anything. I am going to ask about stopping it.
