Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Both the prednisone and diclofenac can potentially affect the stomach to cause inflammation/reflux and in worse possible scenario, stomach bleeding (especially in persons with a history of stomach ulcers).

If you use the medication with a full meal to make sure the stomach is coated and also consider using a medication such as prilosec, nexium or prevacid to further protect the stomach , you should be ok.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
