If you can throw some light on why prednisone, i can help better. Prednisone is known to cause headaches and elevate your sugar levels as well as blood pressure. The head ache can also be aggrevated by increased blood pressure. ibuprofen can help but it'll cause you gastritis as predinose also causes gastritis . Take an antacid, meet your physician and he can taper prednisone if needed.
