the tylenol @ one dose might have been sufficeient for a time, but perhaps talking to your doc about a higher dose or maybe a different analgesia that might be beneficial.
we all feel like walking medicine cabinets every now and then!
have to keep in mind that the pred keeps us wired at nite and can interupt sleep.
