Breastfeeding and Medications

Hi All-
I am currently breastfeeding my almost 5 week old and I have recently starting developing flare symptoms. My Dr. as suggested a short duration of prednisone - is it okay while breastfeeding? Any advice? My Dr. said it would be okay but just like hearing from some other moms out there who've gone through this. I am just feeling worried about exposing my little to it.

Also have any of you taken probiotics and digestive enzymes while breastfeeding? Or know if it is okay to do so?

Thanks

I don't have any personal experience but I know my friend was on prednisone for several weeks while she was 6 months pregnant. No issues, she has a very sweet and healthy 2 year old boy.
