In brief: Lots
Prednisolone is a steroid used to shut down inflammation that causes asthma symptoms, trouble breathing, etc.
Used infrequently in short bursts, it can cause mild behavioral changes, agitation, and hyperactivity. Over time, with repeated use, it can cause a decrease in growth, fat deposition, acne, and bone thinning.
