I know how you feel. I am fighting the same thing with Entocort. a few days after I reduce my dose I have a terrible flare up and can barely function. I actually get clearer skin while on pred though and I lost weight. While on Entocort I gain. Strange huh? I wish I could go back on pred but it just causes to many long term side effects :(
I hope you feel better soon!!! Maybe you can wean off the pred successfully.
Diagnosed w/ Crohn’s Disease March 2007 On Azathioprine (generic Imuran), Pentasa, & ENTOCORT
Diagnosed w/ Fibromyalgia May 2007 also on Soma
Also have Arthritis, and feel like I am falling apart sometimes...
Bummer. I never had much acne at the 20-30 mg a day dosage, but I always had to pee 4-5 times an hour in the mornings, at the begining. The effect wore off, but then you have the mood swings, etc.
I hate pred, but it does work..
