Hello - This is Dr. Shaun and I am a pharmacist with over 15 years of experience. Thank you for the question and for using JustAnswer.

CBD can potentially interact with quite a few drugs due to the way the body metabolizes CBD, but Prednisone does not fall in to any of these classes of drugs.

Therefore it is safe to use CBD and Prednisone (there are no known interactions).

I hope this information helps you. If you need more or would like clarification, please do not hesitate to ask. Please also take a moment to rate your experience.

I have one more question. Are any pain relievers (Advil, Tylenol, Aleve, etc) safe to take with CBD oil?

All of these are fine with the CBD oil, however you do want to be careful with Advil (or any ibuprofen product) and Aleve (or any naproxen product) with prednisone. All of these are anti-inflammatories, the difference being prednisone is steroidal where as the others are non-steroidal. The main thing here is any can cause stomach issues, and taken together it can be even worse. If you need to take something other than prednisone, I recommend the Tylenol while on prednisone. At the very lest separate the pain reliever and prednisone by a few hours, and make sure you have something on your stomach before taking them.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
