User :   I have a peptic ulcer, I have been prescribed Azithromycin Tablets and Prednisone, will either of these irritate my ulcer?
Doctor :   HI
User :   Hi, thank you for your time.
Doctor :   Prednisolone can aggravate gastric ulcers.
Doctor :   You may have to use ulcer protective drugs to counter these, if you are going to use prednisolone.
User :   I am so stressed and do not eat much lately. It is pretty sensitive already.
User :   Maybe I can just not take it real important? Was having breathing issues, felt like an elephant was on my chest and wheezing. Also got an inhaler.
Doctor :   Yes, stress and irregular habits are also ulcer inducers.
Doctor :   Steroid as a inhaler are fine.
User :   I also take regularly IBprophen 800 mg and Nerontin and Hydrocodone
Doctor :   But if you are using oral steroid tablets, you would need anti ulcer medications.
User :   I assume that the Ibs probably caused the problem, they are 10mg prednisone, 3 two times a day for three days, then three a day, then 2 then 1
Doctor :   You have many risk factors which needs modifications, that also includes avoiding ibuprofen.
