Question: I am taking prednisone, and Advil for headache, for suspected temporal arthritis. I'm also on two high blood pressure medications. Would butabital/asa&caff capsule from 2008 help-conflict-hurt?

Brief Answer:
Don't take barbiturates.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for query sir,
No Barbiturate should not be taken by you on your own.
Infact try to increase dose of predniosolone for quick recovery from temporal arteritis.
Caffein would also not help you with that.
