Hello, Adam! How are you?

The typical side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, acne, fluid retention, nervousness and insomnia.

It may take a couple weeks for them all to go away.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Being on prednisone for only 5 days should not cause any side affects, if so they should go away when you finish taking it.

That's not true, Roy. One can have side effects from Prednisone and other steroids after taking one dose. Just an fyi.
