    The pharmacist I work with said you don't really need to so you probably shouldn't. They both do similar things, so taking both would be kind of redundant.

    Was the prednisolone prescribed to be used with ibuprofen? If not, no need to use it. Combining oral corticosteroids (like prednisolone) and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may increase the potential for serious gastrointestinal (GI) toxicity, including inflammation, bleeding, ulceration, and perforation. If you really must take the two (and only if it was prescribed), you are to take the medications with food and to immediately report signs and symptoms of GI ulceration and bleeding such as severe abdominal pain, dizziness, lightheadedness, and the appearance of black, tarry stools. You may also be prescribed with prophylactic anti-ulcer therapy (e.g., antacids, H2-antagonists).
