What type of inhalers does she use? Do they have steroids in them? A Proventil or Albuterol rescue inhaler is fine. You need to check with her doctor if she uses a steroid inhaler.
I have been told to take decongestants while on prednisone BUT since noone here knows her medical history, medications and most importantly, is a doctor, it would not be a good idea to suggest what is okay. I think you need to call her GP/PCP in the AM and run the situation by them.
If she is having difficulty breathing or has sputum that is green, she needs to see a doctor. Prednisone can make one more susecptible to bacterial infections. There is a nasty bronchial bacteris hitting our section of the country. It took me 6 weeks to recover from that.
