In brief: Homeopathic option

There are homeopathic medicines (remedies) that can assist with inflammatory conditions.

In brief: Depends

This depends on what the Prednisone is for. In certain inflammatory cases Prednisone is necessary - but hopefully temporarily.
Although ribes nigrum has some steroid properties, it is not nearly as powerful. Have you adressed the root cause of inflammation: dietary allergens, omega-3, probiotics, nutrients (vitamin c, d, a, zinc...)? Find the root cause and then won't need the prednisone.

Agree with Dr. Katirael---Best therapy is FIND THE ROOT CAUSE and then aim good therapy at the root!
