On the prednisone, I'm not sure. I think it is doubtful that it would interfere with the psilocybin, but I wouldn't want to bet a month's salary on it. Prednisone is a corticosteroid, and has anti-inflammatory effects, but also affects the entire endocrine system, so your hormones will be out of whack while on the prednisone "burst". If it were me, I would wait until the pred is finished, just to be sure.

Fiorinal works for me if I take it at the VERY FIRST HINT of an impending headache when I am in the EARLY stages of a cycle, but is as useless as chewing gum once the cycle is firmly established. I take "Fiorinal C" which is a combination of aspirin, codeine and butalbital (a fast-acting, short-duration mild barbiturate).

I hope the Fiorinal will work for you, but don't be real surprised if it doesn't. To be on the safe side, I would discontinue the Fiorinal twenty-four hours before taking your next dose of mushrooms... I have no idea if barbiturates would interfere with psilocybin. I doubt it, but...
