Prednisone And Methadone Interaction

trish Says:

I am on methadone and my doctor put me on 50mg of prednisone and I have only been on it for two days but every time I take it my legs and back start to hurt really bad and I start to feel methadone isn't working at all could it be because I am.on a big MG of prednisone

Hello, Trish! How are you?

Prednisone can reduce the efficacy of Methadone, so that likely explains the problem. Is this doctor aware that you're on Methadone?

Other typical side effects of Prednisone may also include nausea, headache, insomnia, irritability and acne.

Methadone is classified as an opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

I take oral methadone for pain management and recently had to take prednisone in a med pack. I took a urinalysis and it showed no methadone. Is this because of the steroid med pack?

I am taking Prednisone for a severe allergic reaction to Augmentin. I took it for three days but it's stopping my Methadone from working. Can I stop taking the Prednisone?
