    I have tendinitis that results in a very, very sore shoulder. I started with prednisone this morning (8 days), but tonight my shoulder is really hurting. Can I take ibuprofen?

    That would depend on your medical history.  I am not a doctor or a nurse, so I can't diagnose you.  I did check ibuprofen and prednisone at Drugs.com, and it shows a moderate risk.  Mostly it references issues with GI bleeds.  It says to make sure you eat something if you take both of these drugs to protect your stomach and intestines. I can tell you that I have taken Celebrex and prednisone at the same time during a flare.  I have a chronic gastritis, so I made sure I ate something when I took either of those medications, usually bread.  It seems protect the stomach.  Hope this helps!
