Can I take diet pills while taking prednisone?

You do not indicate what 'diet pill' you are wanting to take. The most common prescription weight loss product is Adipex (phentermine). There are no direct drug interactions between this product and prednisone. You should take both of these early in the morning. You may have trouble going to sleep if you taken these later in the day.

If you have high blood pressure or heart disease, talk to your physician before taking a prescription diet medication.
