1 doctor agrees

In brief: Generally no

It depends on what condition the Prednisone is used for in the first place.
Generally, if a corticosteroid is the only option, then any subsitute steroid would give the same risks.

In brief: No

There is no medicince except for a different form of steroid that will have the effects of prednisone.
They all will have the similar steroid effects.
