I took 2 aleve on thursday morning (had been taking them all week), which had been helping with the pain, but had an allergic reaction (closed throat feeling), along with (what i thought was ) hives
. Doc said i had shingles, gave me acyclovir, prednosine, and some vicodin. He told me to follow up this week with my reg doctor. I did that today, and my doc told me prednosine may not be effective, especially if i got a weird, "wired" feeling from it.
