Angie had a tooth extraction while we were away (she stayed at NGAP). She is normally on pred, but some pills were not given. Is there any reason they would not have given them to her? DH picked her up and says nothing was mentioned. She is on rimadyl and clindamycin for the extraction.

 

The clinic is not open on the weekend.

You can't mix a corticosteroid (prednisone) and a NSAID (Rimadyl)-you will have a pretty cranky GI tract. It's good that they didn't give them together, however, pred should not be abruptly stopped and there should be a washout period between the 2. Personally, I would have substituted the rimadyl with Tramadol.
