hello friend, prednisone pills are excellent anti-inflammatory pills for swelling, congestion, chronic or acute asthma, and other inflammatory conditions. They're not to be used on a regular basis because they can cause cataracts diabetes and bone density problems. But they're often prescribed by physicians for short-term use for asthma, emphysema flareups, allergic reactions, and as agents to block the immune system for chemotherapy for cancer related treatment. They are very inexpensive. Hope this is helpful information and have a great day.
