These two medications are okay to take together, and are safe in the short term, but neither should be taken for long periods of time. Lortab is a combination medication of hydrocodone which is a narcotic and paracetamol which is drug like Tylenol. It is very effective at relieving pain, but causes side effects such as constipation. Prednisone is a steroid which is very powerful at reducing inflammation and can help in relieving pain. Prednisone makes people very hungry, can make diabetes worse, and cause sleep disturbances. When it is taken, people must be tapered off of it to avoid withdrawal effects on the body. You just need to make sure that you take the drug exactly as your doctor
If the pain you are experiencing is still too much for you to handle, or if you are develop unacceptable side effects of the Lortab, then I would suggest calling the oral surgeon
that prescribed you the medicines. You could try an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen that could really help with the pain and avoid the side effects that come along with narcotic medications such as lortab. Your doctor will be able to tell you if you are healthy enough for this medication.
