Patient : I went to the er this morning and had a peritonsilar abcess drained. I have a huge hole in my mouth and find it very difficult to eat and drink, especially if its cold. I was prescribed methylprednisolone in the 6 day dose pack where it decreases by one pull per day. Is it alright to take Advil for the pain with it? I did earlier but after reading a warning on the Advil bottle I'm quite reluctant especially since I havent had much to eat in the last 12 hours let alone 72 hours
