Hello XXXXXXX


Thanks for posting your query.

Solupred contains prednisolone (oral steroid), atarax contains hydroxyzine which is an antihistaminic or anti allergic and Daivobet contains two active substances: calcipotriol and betamethasone (topical steroid). There are no reported interactions between the three drugs and you can taken them but it is advisable to taken them under prescription under a medical supervision.

The side effects of Solupred which contains an oral steroid are fluid and electrolyte imbalance, hypertension, hypokalemia (low potassium), muscle weakness, steroid myopathy, gastritis and peptic ulcers, thin and fragile skin and development of cushingoid state.

So please take this medicine only under a medical supervision and do not stop taking this medicine on your own.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.
