Hello,

Thank you for choosing DoctorSpring.

Advil cold and Sinus capsules (Ibuoprofen + Psuedoephedrine ) can increase the blood levels of Prednisolone and vice versa. However since you are already off Prednisolone you can take Advil. There will not be any interactions or side effects. Do take the medication with food (as there is a higher chance of gastric irritation due to the previous intake of Prednisolone )

Hope this helps
Feel free to ask followups
Thank you

PS : In case if there is any unusual symptom stop the medication and contact your Doctor


Patient replied :

Just to be clear...I can take Advil cold and sinus now or only advil pain capsule?


You can take Advil cold and sinus capsule.
