I have been taking prednisone for my asthma. I am being advised to take a drug called Nucala, which requires that I receive the Shingrix vaccination before I begin taking it. Should I stop the Prednisone before the shingrix vaccination; if so, for how long? And, once I get the first shot of the shingrix (it's a two stage vaccination), when can I resume the prednisone course? Unfortunately prednisone is the only relief that I for my asthma - and also somewhat problematically, I am getting conflicting opinions from two different doctors (I hope you get all this - my last question was truncated quite a bit for whatever reason).
Shingrix - I am taking prednisone for asthma. I am told I should discontinue the prednisone course?

Are you asking about Shingrix? That is a shingles vaccination. It doesn't have anything to do with asthma.
And what dose of prednisone are you on? For how long?
