Hello deneese. I had answered earlier but do not see it so I am answering again.
In order to answer you, please provide what supplements you are using or wanting to know about and what other medicines you are taking. It also helps to know dose of prednisone and length you have taken it or expect to take it. Your diagnosis is important. Long term use of prednisone causes diabetes, so that aspect should be addressed as well. If this is a five day or two week pulse, your system will not be harmed and eat healthy, reduce salt.
General suppliments for long term use is vitamin D3, calcium 1200mg or more per day, multiple vitamins, folic acid. And then depending on your illness there are other recommendations. Including Fosamax, CoQ10, omega3, and so forth.
Hope to hear from you soon.
