Drug & Food Interactions
The following drugs can potentially interact with prednisone: amphotericin B, potassium depleting diuretics, digitalis glycosides, salicylates, insulin, phenytoin, phenobarbital, rifampin, cyclosporine, cyclophosphamide, mitotane, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and anticholinesterase agents. Contact your veterinarian if your pet experiences any unusual reactions when different medications are given together.
Make sure to tell your veterinarian what other medication you are giving to your pet. Quite often your veterinarian may prescribe two different medications, and a drug interaction may be anticipated. In this case, your veterinarian may vary the dose and/or monitor your pet more closely. 
Cautions
This medication does not have an FDA approved indication for use in animals, but it is a common and acceptable practice for veterinarians to prescribe this human medication for use in animals.
Do not use this medication if your pet has a fungal infection anywhere in the body, Cushing's disease, congestive heart failure, certain types of mange, or stomach ulcers. Steroid medication can weaken your pet's immune system, making it easier for them to get an infection or worsening an infection they already have or have recently had. Do not administer a "live" vaccine while using prednisone. Do not stop giving your pet prednisone suddenly, or they could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Ask your veterinarian how to avoid withdrawal symptoms.
The safety of this medication has not been evaluated in pregnant, breeding, or nursing animals.

If your pet displays symptoms of an allergic reaction, call your veterinarian immediately or go to a veterinary emergency clinic. Symptoms may include but are not limited to: swollen lips, tongue, face, airways; difficulty breathing; agitation; profuse salivation; vomiting; widespread hives and itching.
