Hi there,
This is Dr. D.J., experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Gabapentin can cause dizziness and drowsiness as side effects.
Valium can increase the risks of these side effects as well.
Hence, this combination may not be ok at your age.
However, if you are using valium for the anxiety or panic attacks, then occasional use may be ok.
However, you should discuss with your before taking this combination.
Prednisone will not cause any problem with these medications.

Best wishes
