Anaphylactic reactions to prednisone and Benadryl aren't common, but both are possible. In the case that true anaphylaxis is occurring, epinephrine is given followed by oxygen. This is usually followed by the administration of steroids and antihistamines. If a person is allergic to both prednisone and Benadryl, supportive measures and alternative medications can be used.

Can you take Benadryl with Prednisone?

Can antihistamines be taken at the same time as prednisone?Yes you can take Benadryl and Prednisone together. If you're having an allergic reaction, you can add Pepcid AC with the Benadryl to help control itching. Pepcid AC affects the histamines that Benadryl does not. The Prednisone will basically help treat the allergic reaction from the inside but doesn't help itching.

Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening allergic reaction. The related adjective is "anaphylactic," but this isn't used to describe the person (i.e. you wouldn't write "She's anaphylactic for tree nuts.") Instead, it's used to describe the reaction ("She had an anaphylactic reaction to tree nuts.")
