    I've been given Prednisolone 5mg to tackel inflammation on my jaw, but I'm worried of the side effects. I've been given 5mg and I have to take 6 a day for three days. Should I be worried?

    With such a short course, you will be fine.

    The majority of the side effects come from long-term use, and the doses also tend to be a bit higher.
