In brief: Yes, but...
While on prednsone drink little or very moderately.
Why? Prednisone makes the lining of the stomach much more vulnerable to any irritant, which includes etoh (alcohol). Dilute beverages are much preferred like beer. But not much, since both agents can cause gatritis and GI bleeding.
