Nsaids: Naprosyn (naproxen) and Ibuprofen are both NSAIDS, so you can not take both, but you may take naprosyn (naproxen) as instructed to instead of the Ibuprofen, .

Used similarly, both medications are useful in the treatment of inflammatory conditions such as arthritis or asthma.

Steroid side effects: Actually, some people have to take steroids lifelong. Prednisolone is a hormone in the cortisone family, and cortisone is required for life. If the adrenal gland stops producing it, as it does in addison's disease, the patient must take something similar. For normal people, steroids have adverse effects, so it is best to take them for short periods. Longer use can turn off adrenal production too. ...Read more
Personal issue: This is a long acting preparation & breaking up the dose doesn't change much in it's clinical effect. It is usually better to take in one dose just so you won't forget the 2nd. Some may find splitting it easier to get down, since even adults can be poor with this, but that is the only thing I can think of to do so. ...Read more

Steroids/toddlers: I assume these are being given orally. First, you can expect them to spit them back at you, because they leave a terrible aftertaste. Helps to chase with chocolate milk or M&M's. They also will eat you out of house and home and be very sassy. Sleep can be disturbed and may experience night terrors. All of these will disappear once med is done...but in meantime, good luck! ...Read more
It depends.: The botlle should list an expiration date; if it doesn't, call the pharmacy that filled that prescription and they can look it up in their system. ...Read more
