Discussions that mention prevacid

Open to All Other Health Topics board


I went to my Dr. and he told me that I have bronchitis with a little bit of wheezing. He prescribed doxycycline (antibiotic), and Prednisone (20 mg). I need to be on the prednison for 5 days. Take one tablet every other day. Has anyone else taken Prednisone for a short period? Did you have any bad side effects? The reason I ask is because I have acid reflux and take Prevacid. I also have irregular heartbeats (taken nothing for that). I read where Prednisone may speed up your heart rate. Is this true? If any one has taken before, would like your opinion or if you experienced anything.

I have taken prednisone tabs, low dose for a week with no problems at all. You shouldn't either, especially since you are taking a tab every other day.


I checked out drug interactions for you and if you are otherwise healthy, Prevacid will not, nor does NOT have clinically significant interactions with drugs such as warfarin, antipyrine, indomethacin, ibuprofen, phenytoin, propranolol, prednisone, diazepam, clarithromycin, or terfenadine.

So you should be okay. Prednisone usually causes problems with long term use and massive doses.
