I am currently taking Prednisone 20mg 1x daily and Levoquin

I am currently taking Prednisone 20mg 1x daily and Levoquin for an upper respiratory infection with 1-2 degree fever and mild to moderate malaise. Would it be safe to take Ibuprofen-200mg every 4-6 hrs to reduce fever/malaise? Can Ibupr interact with either of the 2 drugs in a negative way?

I have been prescribed prednisone daily to help with my asthma symptoms . I am currently taking between 40-60mg/day for almost a year. Every time I get my taper close to 20mg/day I start to have symptoms again. I am also on 800mg of theophylline/day. The side effects from these medications are almost worse than the asthma symptoms...does any one have any suggestions on how I can get my prednisone taper down below 20mg/day safely?
