Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Osteoarthritis prescribed 10 mg for 5 days
Expert:  DR.EHTISHAM replied 6 months ago.

Thanks for the information

Yes you can take Prednisolone with Naproxen and there is no contraindication to this. Although this is a comparatively high dose of prednisolone but taking it for 5 days will not give you any harm or side effects related to steroid. The only problem which can occur by taking these together is gastritis so to prevent this you should take omeprazole as well.

Good luck
