Survivor 49, I am so sorry to hear about the nasty emotional side effects caused by the Prednisone you're taking. I have never taken Prednisone for my CD, Entocort has been my staple. Entocort does cause me emotional ups and downs but not as severe as you're having on the Pred...and to hear that it's not working for your pain is even worse. Please talk to your GI right away, be honest with your doc and let him/her know what you're going thru, there are other medications you can take that won't cause such severe emotional upheaval. Please hang in there and know that you are not alone. Take care.
