Hey chiijhen,

It really depends on what the pain reliever is. The prednisone and taraxin (hydroxyzine) are ok to take together. The pain reliever with the taraxin may make you sleepy and could cause central nervous system depression, but again it depends on what the pain releiver is. Could you hit comment and give us more information?

The steroid such as prednisone is not good to take with a nonsteroidal anti inflammatory (NSAID) such as ibuprofen due to the potential to cause ulceration or bleeding in the stomach or intestinal tract. I would switch to tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain relief. To read more about the potential for interaction go to:,1310-0,1936-0 free discount card
