I have congenital adrenal hyperplasia. My endocrinologist wants me to use beclometasone dipropionate nasal spray instead of prednisolone is this safe?

I have congenital adrenal hyperplasia. My endocrinologist wants me to use beclometasone dipropionate nasal spray instead of prednisolone is this safe?
