I took 50 mgs per day of prednisone for 13 years. This woulod be 5 mgs less than the typcal dosage in a standard Z pack. From 13-26 I ploayed contact sports to take out my aggressions. Each person reacts differently to medications based upon their personality. My reading of the literature on both drugs, I had typical side effects from both drugs. Unfortunately I had a simle side effect ot the pred. It made my bad temper worse and my high strung personality more high strung.
I took both at the same time. I hated the prednisone, but it was the only drug that kept me alive. Do not give in to the temptation to take more xanax as the prednison will amplify your panic disorder. Based kon my prednisone experience, putting out a fire by throwing gasoline upon it, the prednisone in itself will make you think you are suffering an intense panic attack.
I had sinus infections from 3 broken nosed. By using the nasal lavage faithfully everyday I have solved my sinus infections.
Therfore take both, but know that the prednisone will make your high strung personality more high strung.
Only increase your xanax dose if prescribed by a physician.
