Thanks for posting your query. I am happy to address your questions, the use of prednisolone, a corticosteroid, in HIV treatment with short-course corticosteroids may be used safely in HIV-infected patients with minimal impact on HIV-RNA levels. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help. Thanks
