I am taking prednisone for an allergic reaction to something

I am taking prednisone for an allergic reaction to something I ate in Japan. I have many food allergies. This one is just big all over my body itchy hives. My doctor has given me prednisone to take over the next two weeks. After I take the days dosage and am ready for bed, can I take 2 1/2 or 5mg of valium. I take this drug very rarely for anxiety usually associated with speaking engagements and more rarely to sleep. But, now the interfacing of jet lag and prednisone has me up and wide awake now.

Hello. I had my first ever allergic reaction on Sunday evening. I got hives and my face swelled up. I went to the hospital and the put me on a drip and injected me with all types of things. I have been prescribed prednisone and something else for allergic reactions. I was told to only really start today (Tuesday). The hives have spread and weirdly, my hands and feet are in agony whenever I use them. I am struggling to walk at the moment. I have no more swelling. I am a little worried that I am experiencing these symptom so long after my initial reaction.
