Hello. Prednisone is not known to interact with this drug. However prednisone does interact with anti-histimines. My question to you is are you taking any other medications or supplements like vitamins, malox, whatever?
Prednisone can be very effective to reduce allergic responses. Many medications, like an antibiotic can take days to be totally gone from your body. You ought to see improvement by end of a week. If not or it flares up again, call the doctor. Hope you will soon be over the worse of this.
