In brief: No interaction

Prednisone treats quite a few conditions and also interacts with quite a few medications, but fortunately not so much with birth control pills, in general.
Unfortunately, unexpected reaction can occur with any med or combination of meds, thus always use with caution. Use smallest effective dose for shortest duration possible. Consult doc. Good luck.
