Brief Answer:
no significant interactions

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Biocleanse is a combination of different ingredients including vitamin c, magnesium, sodium, bioflavonoids (compounds found in citrus fruits as well as currants).
There is no known interaction between these agents and prednisone.

Some medications that decrease or affect the immune response can affect probiotics effectiveness so it is possible that the prednisone, (affects the immune response), can affect how well the probio 5 works for you.

Other than this possibility, there should be no other problems

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
