Side Effects and Warnings
Side effects are generally dependent on dosage, and the most common include increased appetite, thirst, and urination. Less common side effects may include panting, diarrhea, vomiting, restlessness, and behavioral changes. Long-term use may result in the side effects such as hair loss, muscle loss, weakness, the development of diabetes or hyperadrenocorticism, and the development or worsening of hypothyroidism or pancreatitis. Immune system suppression can occur at higher doses, making your pet more susceptible to infection. Contact your veterinarian if your pet has a fever or exhibits tiredness, sneezing, coughing, runny eyes, or painful urination. Stop giving the medication and seek emergency veterinary medical attention if your pet exhibits any of the following serious side effects: an allergic reaction, increased blood pressure, or sudden weight gain.
Contact your veterinarian if any side effects seem severe or distressing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cor05vette 2.5 mg twice a day for my cat.
My cat was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome two years ago. After four visits to the vet for diarrhea and loss of appetite. It was either put her down or try Prednisolone. She still has bouts once or twice a month, but this medication has kept her at least comfortable. She is now almost 17 years old and we are wondering how much longer she will tolerate this medication. We were told it may affect her kidneys or liver eventually.
