Prednisone is an anti-inflammatory. It's uses vary, but for copd it's used primarily to make breathing easier. Use it exactly as your doctor says, unless you have side effects that concern you. Also be aware that long term use can have pretty horrible consequences, and some people can't tolerate it at all. It's also used for other diseases like Lupus. Hope this helps.
