In brief: Not sure

Constipation may be different from hard to digest food.
Prednisolone can cause stomach pain and ulcers, heartburn. For constipation, you can try non-prescription MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) powder, as well as milk of magnesia, docusate suppository, fleets enema, or check with your doctor about other prescription options.
