Patient :I am a 45 year old male. I was diagnosed with shingles about 2 weeks ago. The Dr started me on 60mg of prednisone and now I'm down to 20mg for 2 more days. I have taken 5 lortabs in this 2 weeks and still need something mild but I was told ibuprofen and prednisone can't be taken together without being under a Dr's care. Is this true? Please let me know if I can take the ibuprofen. I am not on any other medication. Thank you for your time.
