Hello,

Interactions between your drugs
Moderate
predniSONE guanFACINE
Applies to: prednisone, guanfacine

PredniSONE may reduce the effects of guanFACINE in lowering blood pressure. The interaction is most likely to occur when predniSONE is used for more than a week, since prolonged use can cause sodium and water retention. Let your doctor know if you experience sudden, unexplained weight gain or swelling of the hands, ankles, or feet. You may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring by your doctor to safely use both medications. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.

Moderate
Moderately clinically significant. Usually avoid combinations; use it only under special circumstances.
