Prednisone *is* an anti-inflammatory, a corticosteroid -- an NSAID without the "N", so to speak. Is stronger than the endogenous cortisol.

I've been aware of it for some time, but for most of the time I've been familiar with lithium, I didn't know about it at all. I had read the prescribing information for lithium and it wasn't mentioned, or at least not as prominently as warranted given the prevalence of NSAID use.
