Need to turn to your'e doctor,write down all the concerns you got about the meds. If he can't do it-find another doctor. OR ask the pharmacist. Don't look for answers on the internet. best regards and hope you find the answers!

Prednisolone has been known to cause slowed growth, and development in children, as well as significant weight gain, but that's usually with long-term use, and your pediatrician should be monitoring them regularly while they are taking it.

Ref: Medline Plus Prednisolone

Why has it been prescribed, and how long will they be taking it?

Typical short term use side effects, as reported by the FDA, may include nausea, headache, nervousness, acne, and insomnia.
