Hi all, since some questions arose on this thread regarding prednisone and prednisolone, we asked a Mayo Clinic pharmacist if she might have anything to add to the discussion. Here what she had to say:

Prednisone and prednisolone are steroids that can reduce inflammation from a large variety of conditions. Both are available in tablet and liquid formulations. The expected side effects would be the same. The liquid formulations are best for children and patients who have difficulty swallowing pills. The liquid formulation gets into our blood a little faster than tablets. Nausea with both formulations can be reduced taking doses with some bland food.

Additional tips for managing steroid-related side effects can be found at https://www.hss.edu/conditions_steroid-side-effects-how-to-reduce-corticosteroid-side-effects.asp.
