Return to CJ Hot Topic: Prednisone


Mornings may not be as dreadful for people suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis and other chronic inflammatory diseases with the introduction of a low-dose, time released, specially coated version of Prednisone that’s designed to kick in when you need it:

Krant:  “It is a fascinating idea and a smart one”

Dr. Jonathan Krant, Chief Medical Officer of CreakyJoints and Chief of Rheumatology for the Adirondack Health Systems:

Krant: “The benefits are the lack of morning stiffness, aching and tenderness, allowing the patient to function in the early morning hours without hot water, stretching and waiting for the conventional therapy to take effect.”

Even thought it’s low-dose and time-release, it’s still Prednisone and still has side effects so see your doctor.

And that’s a CJ Wrap, I’m Stacey Cahn
