In brief: Any dose

All medications have side effects which can be dangerous.
You and your doctor must make a risk vs benefit decision with medication choices. The risks of corticosteroids is related to the dose and duration of treatment. Lower doses have less risk. There is no such thing as a medication with no risk.
