Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

This is a great question and doxycycline and prednisone are often given in conjunction in immune mediated or viral disorders so you are safe to administer them together. I will always recommend separating by at least an hour the first 1-2 administrations with food to ensure that if there is an upset stomach from one or the other we will know which one is the culprit but once you pass the first 24 hours you can administer together as long as there is something in Faith's stomach
