Mainstream medicine’s top weapons against inflammation are glucocorticoid drugs. They include cortisone and prednisone.
These drugs are also called steroids. But they aren’t the kind that give you muscle. Instead, they change your metabolism to tamp down inflammation.
Doctors prescribe them for a wide variety of conditions. They include autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, colitis, psoriasis, and eczema.
