摘要Objectives Acute gouty arthritis is often treated with NSAIDs, but recent studies have suggested that treatment with prednisolone has at least equivalent analgesic efficacy and fewer adverse effects. No formal economic analysis has been performed earlier. In this study, we aimed to compare the economic impact of oral indomethacin therapy and oral prednisolone therapy in the treatment of acute gout in patients presenting to an emergency department in Hong Kong.
