Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist with vast experience in diagnosing & treating all types of neurological & other medical conditions including the concerns of “Medication interactions” you have mentioned here and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns.

You can combine Azithromycin, Advair 100/50 and Prednisone together

There are no major or serious drug interactions when you combine these three drugs

These type of drug combinations are used in clinical practice and experience shows these 3 meds can be combined together

Once again I reassure you using the above mentioned three meds is not expected to cause any serious or major drug interactions, and this combination is being used in clinical practice. And since steroid can irritate the stomach you may use some kind of gastric protectors like Famotidine or Omeprazole etc, but these 3 drugs can be used together.
