Depends on duration: Prednisone is a type of steroid used to treat a diverse number of conditions. When used for short courses (up to a few weeks) for conditions such as croup, asthma, and allergic reactions, it is very safe except for stomach upset and possible behavior changes. Used long term (months) for things like rheumatologic conditions can cause diabetes, osteoporosis, fat gain, and increased infections.
