Steroid treatment increases chances of infection & may prolong or worsen a pre-existing infection.

Amoxicillin does not have any harmful interaction with midodrine, prilosec & steroids.

I think the use of antibiotics for an infection in a patient who is on steroids is appropriate.

The risk of flaring of infection needs to be balanced with benefits in MS treatment by your doctor while using steroids in the presence of infection.
